Dove Fretland & Van Valkenburg – Minnesota Divorce Lawyers and Family Law Attorneys

Divorce and its aftermath can be emotionally devastating. But successfully dealing with divorce means focusing on the future, rather than dwelling on the past. At Dove Fretland & Van Valkenburg we guide our clients through the process of divorce. By providing assertive representation in divorce and related matters, our divorce lawyers work to protect our clients’ rights and interests, so they can face the future with hope.

At Dove Fretland & Van Valkenburg, we represent clients in matters involving:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody and parent access (visitation)
  • Child support
  • Equitable division of marital property
  • Spousal maintenance and support (alimony)
  • Modifications of child custody and support orders
  • Rights of grandparents and unmarried parents regarding child visitation
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Elder law divorce
  • Tribal Court appearances
  • Collaborative law
  • And others

Some divorce and child custody disputes can be highly contentious, even bitter. In these cases, our attorneys vigorously assert the rights of our clients through a firm stance and clear, forthright court actions and filings. In other situations, the parties may have a mutual desire to settle matters with as little emotional strife as possible. Here, our lawyers employ negotiation, divorce mediation, and collaborative divorce law techniques to achieve the client’s aims.

We help clients with simple divorces, as well as complex divorce cases involving extensive assets. Whatever your situation, at our offices you will find attorneys who will listen to your needs and your concerns. Our divorce lawyers, Laura Fretland, Jane Van Valkenburg, and Richard Schieffer, want to protect your rights and interests and those of your family, so you can enjoy a bright and hopeful future.
