Property Division in Divorce

In Minnesota, property division is governed by the state's equitable distribution laws. While the laws do not specify exactly how property should be divided, they do outline certain guidelines and considerations that the court will take into account when making the decision.

When deciding how to divide property, courts will follow the following principles:

  • fairness
  • the financial circumstances of each spouse
  • the needs of the children
  • the duration of the marriage

For example, if one spouse made significantly more money than the other during the course of the marriage, the court is much more likely to award that spouse a greater share of the property. If the marriage lasted a long time, courts will typically award a greater share of the property to the spouse who earned the greater share of assets. Courts will also take into account the needs of any children and will try to ensure that they are taken care of after the divorce.
