With 40+ years of practical experience in his exclusive focus on Minnesota family law, Mr. Sobol has helped thousands of individuals and their families through all phases of the legal process. 

He handles the following Issues:

  • Divorce. Whether you are facing an uncontested or contested divorce, a complex high net-worth divorce, or an LGBT divorce, you will need to resolve such issues as the division of the marital estate, child custody, child support, and spousal support. Mr. Sobol is well-versed in the laws governing these issues and how to resolve them to optimum effect. 
  • Custody. This involves both physical and legal custody, which should be thoroughly addressed through parenting plans that adhere to the court’s policy of doing what is in the child’s best interests. 
  • Paternity. This proceeding allows biological parents to seek custody and child support rights and obligations through the courts. 
  • Child Support. All Minnesota parents are legally obligated to provide financial support for their children. This is typically done through state guidelines. 
  • Spousal Maintenance. This type of financial support is determined on a case-by-case basis. Brian can help you seek or contest this legal obligation.
  • Post-Degree Modification. Should your circumstances materially and substantially change after a family court order has been issued, you may seek a modification of its terms through legal action. 
  • Protective Orders. These court orders are common in domestic violence cases. Brian has successfully sought these orders for abused victims as well as defended those falsely accused of abuse. 
  • Antenuptial Agreements. Brian has substantial experience in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to clarify property division, spousal support, and other rights upon divorce or the death of either party. 
  • Mediation. This alternative dispute resolution method is commonly required in family law cases. Brian is an AAML-certified mediator who has helped countless individuals resolve their cases outside of court. 
  • Appeals. If you feel your case was wrongly decided, you may have grounds for an appeal. Brian can assess your case to determine if it has merit for an appeal. He has handled close to 100 appeals in the higher courts. 
  • International Family Law. This branch of law deals with family-related issues on an international scale. It encompasses cases such as international child custody disputes, international divorce, and cross-border family-related issues. Brian is experienced in such matters, including the Hague Convention.
