Legal Separation | Domestic Partner | Same-Sex

When a divorcing couple is not in agreement on how to handle issues related to children, support, property, or other financials, they may need to litigate their dissolution through Court proceedings. Our attorneys work hard to reach agreements so that the Court is not left to decide what works best for you and your family. When the Court is left to decide, our attorneys are experienced litigators who can represent you through trial if necessary.

Collaborative Divorce

Some couples may be able to reach agreements in their divorce through the collaborative divorce process instead of through litigation. This option is suited for couples who believe that they can reach agreement on all the aspects pertinent to their situation, along with the help of their attorneys and other professionals that may be engaged to address complex issues related to children, financial, or assets. In the collaborative divorce process, couples agree to work toward settlement without Court intervention.

The court-dictated process of litigating a divorce proceeding includes alternative dispute resolution in various forms to try and reach agreements before the court intervenes. If settlement is not reached the case will proceed to pretrial and subsequently trial unless settled by the parties.
In the collaborative divorce process meetings are held between the parties and experts until agreements are reached at which time a divorce decree is submitted to the court.

Custody & Parenting Time

Custody and parenting time is considered on a case-by-case basis with the best interest of the child(ren) in mind while applying Minnesota Statutes “12 Best Interests Factors”.

Spousal Support & Child Support

Minnesota statutes guide how child support is calculated, and spousal maintenance is based on statutory factors combined with the unique factors of the case.

Property Division & Non-Marital Claims

Our attorneys have experience handing the division of property ranging from low monetary value to high value assets. What property or assets that are important to you may not be important to someone else in similar circumstances. Our attorneys can help settle property disputes, the division of assets, and address non-marital assets or property.

Getting Started

The first step is to speak with one of our attorneys who can review the aspects of your case and explain the various options based on the outcomes you are seeking. When unsure if moving forward is the right thing to do, they will discuss the likelihood of success, risks, costs, and other implications.

LawPay Card Vault

LawPay’s Secured Credit Card Vault

LawPay’s Card Vault stores preferred payment methods in a secure vault. Card Vault and LawPay are 100% PCI compliant. This means it follows all industry and jurisdictional regulations, standards, and best practices.

There are two ways to store payment information: Add New Card or Request Card.

When the Add New Card method is used, the firm inputs the payment information received from a client over the phone. Note that Baker Vicchiollo Law does not accept or send credit card information via email due to security risks. The Request Card method is when the firm sends an email that includes a link which the client uses to input payment information themselves.

After the credit card or eCheck bank information is collected and vaulted, only the last four digits of the card and expiration date will be visible. The client is also able to input multiple payment methods such as a credit card and eCheck to have on file. As the client fills out the vault form, they’ll also be required to give the firm authorization to make charges, in accordance with the signed retainer agreement.

LawPay PCI Compliance

What is PCI compliance and why is it important?

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards set in place by the major card brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and JCB). Its purpose is to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment to prevent this information from being stolen or compromised. The standard was originally adopted in 2006 and requires businesses to complete an annual compliance questionnaire regarding the way credit card information is handled in their office.

Is LawPay PCI certified?

Yes, LawPay is PCI DSS certified. ControlScan, a VISA Qualified Security Assessor, has independently audited LawPay and certified that LawPay is PCI DSS compliant. LawPay’s online portal is certified as a Level 1 Service Provider, the highest security level available.
