If you are confused or worried about this process, knowing your rights and options can help you and your family. In all matters, the involvement of an experienced family law attorney is crucial.



Ryan Schmisek is experienced in both litigating and negotiating settlements for all Twin Cities divorce and family law matters.  Even an amicable divorce can be stressful. Ryan recognizes the stress of dealing with the dissolution of a marriage and it is his goal to ensure that the process moves forward as seamlessly as possible.

Child Custody

One of the hardest decisions to make in a divorce or family law case is determining arrangements for your children – how important decisions will be made for them in the future, and when they will spend time with each parent. Sometimes these issues are settled through mediation or otherwise, and other times they are aggressively fought for through litigation in court.

Child Support

As a Twin Cities Child Support Attorney, Ryan Schmisek routinely handle matters to establish child support, enforce existing child support orders, or modify child support orders. We handle cases where the parties and children all live in Minnesota, as well as, complex multi-state matters under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA).

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony or spousal support, is a series of payments (typically monthly) that one spouse or former spouse makes to the other. These payments can be required while the divorce process is on-going, as well as after a divorce order is final. The decisions about what the maintenance amount should be and how long it will last can be made by agreement of the parties or by a judge.
