This is just one of her qualifications as a Dakota County divorce attorney. She has also been certified as a Guardian ad Litem for the State of Minnesota in Dakota County. This Dakota County divorce attorney has also received additional training and experience in the family law industry as a Rule 114 Mediator, Financial Early Neutral Evaluator (FENE), and Social Early Neutral Evaluator (SENE). She is a member of the Dakota County Bar Association, Hennepin County Bar Association, Minnesota State Bar Association and also a member of the Family Law Section. She is licensed to practice law in all federal courts and district courts in Minnesota. She earned her JD from Hamline University School of Law in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and graduated with honors from Saint Cloud State University, where she completed an undergraduate course.
Lisa Amundson says, “I am an experienced and efficient divorce lawyer who can help you understand how the law applies to your particular situation. I will work with you to develop a plan that meets the priorities and needs of you and your children. From your initial consultation to finalizing the divorce, I will strive to safeguard your best interests every step of the way.
In the meantime, she also wants to point out that state child support law is based on the concept that a child is entitled to the income of both parents and regardless of whether the parent has custody or nope. Thus, the income of the non-custodial parent is taken into account rather than the particular need of the child. And even if the custodial parent happens to be wealthy, or even a billionaire, the non-custodial parent is still obligated to pay child support. Minnesota child support guidelines are therefore based on the income of the non-custodial parent. Although there are many factors for the court to consider in determining the actual amount of child support, in most cases the amount is determined based on child support guidelines. Generally, the amount of child support is based on the net income of the non-custodial parent and the number of children, but no more than $6,975.
As part of Lisa Amundson’s family law attorney services, she provides a free initial consultation to people facing spousal support and child support issues who need legal help regarding various divorce issues. It is important to note that spousal maintenance or alimony was previously granted simply to stay-at-home mothers. However, the courts have had to re-examine the issue of spousal support due to the growing number of two-earner households and changing society. Currently, courts must ensure that they assess the unique financial circumstances of each divorcing couple instead of simply basing their decisions on archaic gender roles.
When working with a client, Lisa Amundson makes sure to fully understand their situation in order to provide answers to any questions the client may have. The initial consultation she offers for free will allow the client to ask questions and find out if they would like the firm to take care of their case.
