Our Family Law Services

The matters involved in divorce and family law are often difficult and life-altering. The St. Paul family law attorneys at Bowden ♦ Cyr, PLLC understand this and provide aggressive representation that is solution-oriented without the unnecessary escalation of conflict. Whether we employ the use of litigation, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution, our attention is always focused first and foremost on the needs of our clients. We resolve and finalize all legal matters in a mindful manner representative of our integrity and compassion.

We represent clients in all aspects of family law, including:

  • Divorce - Our firm provides supportive guidance throughout the entire divorce process, ensuring that our clients' interests are always protected. No matter the situation, we will listen to your concerns and help you make the best decisions for yourself and your family regarding the various issues that accompany the ending of a marriage.

  • Child Custody - Nothing in a divorce is more difficult or complex than the issues of child custody and visitation. We help parents develop workable custody arrangements and visitation schedules that meet their children's needs and fit the family's unique goals and objectives.

  • Child Support - In Minnesota, both parents' incomes are considered when courts determine child support amounts. We represent parents seeking to obtain a maximum child support award, as well as parents seeking to minimize the amount of child support they are ordered to pay.

  • Spousal Maintenance - In determining whether either spouse will be required to pay spousal maintenance (alimony) during or after divorce, courts look at factors such as income disparity and the length of the marriage. We help our clients reach fair and appropriate spousal maintenance arrangements.

  • Property Division - Minnesota is an equitable distribution state, which means marital property is to be divided equitably, but not necessarily equally, upon divorce. Courts will look at many factors to determine what is equitable in a given situation.

  • Paternity - Establishing paternity gives a father certain rights and responsibilities in regard to his child, and also enables a child to receive benefits or inheritance from his or her father. We can help clients assert or challenge paternity depending on their needs.
