Many people think that when you go to court in Minnesota, you always face the potential to go to jail. However, this is not true when it comes to personal injury cases. The American Bar Association explains this is a civil case. That means there is no potential for going to jail. So, if you sue someone for a personal injury issue, that person will not go to jail if the judge finds in your favor. In addition, this type of case usually does not have guilty verdicts, so the other person will not be found guilty. Rather the judge would find him or her at fault.
In many cases, real estate is the biggest asset in a Minnesota divorce, whether it is the home you have been living in full-time, a vacation cabin or undeveloped land. While court forms only allow for one or the other spouse to have 100% of a piece of property, there are other legal options available. The experienced team at Trenti Law Firm helps clients determine a fair solution when dividing property for the best possible outcome.
