Minnesota Divorce Guidelines

Minnesota's Residency Requirements

Either the petitioner or respondent must have been a Minnesota resident for 180 days or more before filing for divorce.


Minnesota's Grounds for Divorce

Minnesota residents may file for divorce under only no-fault grounds.

Minnesota's no-fault grounds is:

  • irretrievable breakdown of the marriage, resulting in living separate and apart for 180 days or more.

Minnesota's Child Custody Guidelines

Divorcing parents are allowed to collaborate on a child custody arrangement. If the parents cannot reach a decision, a Minnesota court will make a ruling

Minnesota courts consider factors such as:

  • the child's cultural background
  • each parent's moral, emotional, mental, and physical health
  • the wishes of the child, if of sufficient age and mental capacity

Minnesota's Child Support Guidelines

If the parents cannot agree on the amount of child support and the paying parent, child support will be decided by state-specific calculations and guidelines.

Minnesota courts consider factors such as:

  • each parent's financial resources and income
  • the needs of the child
  • the standard of living experienced by the child during the marriage

Minnesota's Spousal Support Guidelines

Spousal support can be paid in one lump sum, in installments, or periodically. The spouses may determine the spousal support amount and payment schedule, or the courts may award spousal support.

Minnesota courts consider factors such as:

  • the standard of living experienced during the marriage
  • property division arrangement
  • each spouse's financial situation

Minnesota's Property Division Guidelines

Minnesota has adopted equitable guidelines, which means all property (including gifts and inheritances) will be divided as fairly and equally as possible. Spouses may collaborate on the property distribution, but if they are unable to agree the courts will make a ruling.

Minnesota courts will consider factors such as:

  • each spouse's contribution to the property, including acquisition and upkeep of property
  • any prior marriages
  • each spouse's financial circumstances
  • duration of the marriage

Minnesota's Venue Guidelines

The petitioner may file the divorce forms in their Minnesota county of residence, or in the respondent's Minnesota county of residence.

"Reading your previous clients testimonials and seeing the accredited sites is what made me give this site a try. I do not believe I need an attorney, and I just needed the paperwork prepared for me. My Husband and I have been separated for some time and I do not even know his location. It is just time to finalize the past and press toward the future. This website was also in our online local newspaper ad section. iDivorceForms has made the process much easier for me. Thank you."
