Child Custody

When parents split, the issue of who is granted custody of shared children can be a difficult one. A child custody or visitation battle following a divorce is never easy, and if you’re like most parents you just want what is best for your children. Luckily, Minnesota governments feel the same, and most laws are tailored to provide for the child’s best interests. Many factors are taken into consideration when deciding who is granted custody, so it’s helpful to have a lawyer go through these factors with you so you know exactly what you might be up against in court.

"Brian Flakne handled my civil litigation in Hennepin County. Brian's courtroom skills are outstanding. I appreciated the time he took to explain all the relevant aspects of the law so that I would not be surprised by the arguments opposing counsel used at trial. By the time we started trial, I was confident that we had a terrific game plan and that we would win. He found a way for me to stand up to a bully and prevail."
