Lesa Koski is a Family Lawyer who serves the people of Stillwater, Woodbury, and many other towns and cities in Minnesota. It is a common misconception that all divorce proceedings that involve attorneys translate to long, protracted, and bitter court battles. Until we have experienced something as significant as divorce, though, our perceptions are shaped by the extremes that dominate our various landscapes—social media, television shows, movies, etc. Some of the stress we experience when we find ourselves in the middle of something as difficult as a divorce is caused by our lacking an accurate frame of reference. But a good lawyer, can not only avoid bitter court battles, but avoid court proceedings altogether. Lesa Koski can mitigate the impact of court proceedings so that you can begin the process of getting your life back on track.
Navigating Legal Aspects of a Divorce
It is important to know too that family law covers more than just divorce proceedings. Lesa Koski is professionally equipped to represent other family members, such as grandparents, who are denied visitation with their grandchildren as a result of a divorce settlement. Children, of course, are a central focus of Lesa Koski’s family law practice. And she understands that children, being impressionable and sensitive to the stress of issues related to family law, feel the impact of circumstances created by the adults in their lives. Even when divorcing couples are prepared to end their marriages amicably, the divorce process can become complicated.
Marriage means that assets have been combined, debts have been incurred together, and two lives have been intertwined emotionally, psychologically, and socially. The process of untying those knots, even in the most amicable of circumstances, requires a large measure of work and attention to detail. If you and your spouse are divorcing, and most especially if you have children who will be affected by your decision to divorce, contact Lesa Koski for assistance. She can represent you as a family lawyer or can also serve as a divorce mediator.
