Woodbury divorce lawyer Jeffrey R. Arrigoni has more than 33 years of legal experience, assisting clients throughout the Twin Cities metro area in a full range of family law matters, from commencement through conclusion, including mediation, trials, and appeals. As a divorce lawyer, Mr. Arrigoni is very sensitive to his clients’ needs and concerns, but he is tough when it comes to protecting their rights and interests.

Divorce Attorney discusses Minnesota Divorce Law
The formal legal term for divorce in Minnesota is Dissolution of Marriage. Beyond entering a formal decree dissolving the marriage, a divorce court will also deal with diverse issues such as child custody, child support, spousal maintenance (alimony), the division of marital property, the award of non-marital property (assets brought into the marriage by one of the spouses), valuations of businesses, division of debt, and the division of pension and retirement plans. Resolving these questions in your best interest requires an experienced attorney who is familiar with Minnesota family law and the Minnesota Courts and does not have to spend substantial time doing research to assist you in strategizing and evaluating and handling these matters. Jeff Arrigoni is a Washington and Ramsey County divorce lawyer with 32 years of legal experience in the Minnesota courts. Jeff practices in family law and represents clients throughout the twin city area, including in Dakota County, Hennepin County, Anoka County, Scott County, Carver County, Chisago County, Pine County, Sherburne County, Isanti County, and Kanabec County.
It is difficult, if not impossible, in many instances to correct errors or decisions that have been made in a divorce proceeding by someone who has attempted to complete the forms themselves and who has finalized a divorce without consulting an experienced family law attorney. Once the final paperwork is submitted to the Court and signed off by a Judge, you may have waived your right to pursue potential relief. It is therefore critical that you obtain legal representation at the first sign that a divorce is imminent or will likely occur. Minnesota Family Law is a unique area of legal practice. It is not simple, but is instead filled with a vast array of Minnesota case law interpreting unique facts and circumstances in all different cases. There are also unique formulas that are used and long-standing precedent (prior case law) that are considered by the Court in dealing with issues such as spousal maintenance and non-marital assets, the calculation of child support, and the valuation of businesses, that requires an experienced lawyer who practices a substantial amount of the time dealing with family law matters.
