Divorce Lawyer Represents Dakota County
Simply defined, a divorce terminates a marital relationship between two individuals. The divorce process will legally terminate a marriage and will divide a couple’s assets and debts, as well as determine the care and custody of their children (when applicable). While it is generally hoped for that a couple may end their marriage amicably and reach a negotiated settlement on issues regarding custody, property division and spousal maintenance (among others), there are times in which doing so is simply impossible.
The attorneys at Howard Family Law, LLC offer a free 30 minute initial consultation to every potential client, during which time they’ll discuss your case and explain how the divorce process works, both legally and practically. After all, educated clients generally make much more informed decisions about their future.

You can be assured that we will always give you our candid and honest opinions regarding the facts and legal aspects of your case.
I hadn’t used an attorney for my divorce, but now that I have worked with Lyndsay, I wish I had known her back then. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and made things easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and was very cognizant of my time and kept fees down by doing so. I would highly suggest that anyone considering a divorce see Lyndsay first!! -Mary E.
Avoid a Lengthy and Expensive Divorce Battle
We encourage our clients to try and settle their divorce-related issues such as child custody arrangements, visitation rights, alimony and the division of marital property. The reason we recommend settling is because it often saves our clients time, money and emotional turmoil. When a client and their spouse reach mutually agreeable settlement terms, they are more likely to be satisfied with these agreements forever, thus negating the need to come back and modify these terms later. Reaching mutually agreeable terms allows clients to make decisions about their own future, rather than having a judge impose terms that neither party find appealing.
Howard Family Law, LLC helps clients reach common ground wherever possible, and will explore all options regarding custody, property division and financial issues, among others. A lengthy and expensive divorce battle is in no one’s best interest, and we promise to do everything in our power to protect you from that situation.
There are times when litigation is simply unavoidable. This may be true for a variety of reasons, such as a party’s unwillingness or inability to compromise and/or unreasonable/unfair settlement proposals from your spouse. If your divorce requires litigation, rest assured that the attorneys at Howard Family Law, LLC possess the experience to obtain the best results for your family.
