Minnesota's Family Law Blog

It wouldn’t be a legal website without a disclaimer would it?  So here it is, this site is supplied for general information and its not intended to give any sort of legal advice.  As much as Google would have you believe it, Google is not a substitute for a licensed Minnesota attorney and you can’t get your law degree from Google (yet).

As you know, there is a lot of questionable and outdated advice on the internet and this site is really no different (the outdated part not the questionable part).  Some of the older posts may cite laws that have been changed or repealed and that is why you need to do your research and if needed, hire a good Minnesota Family Lawyer.
