Coronavirus Impact and Assurance: Yes! We are still open for business!

For the last year, thanks to the hard work of all of our staff, and you, our clients, no one who works at this office has gotten Covid while working here, and we have not spread a single case to any of our clients, while getting all of our client's legal needs taken care of. With the spread of vaccination the end is in sight, normal times where we can meet our clients in person in the office are just around the corner.

During the transition we will be having some in person, in office appointments for clients who have already been vaccinated, and for whom the CDC recommended period of time has passed since their last shot. Of course, for anyone who would prefer a phone or video appointment for safety, convenience, or any other reason those types of appointments are always available.

For our clients who have not yet completed the vaccination cycle phone and video appointments are of course available, and, with the return of warm weather we will again be offering outside appointments under the tent right outside our front door. For all appointments, masks will continue to be required.

Through the transition safety of all staff and clients will continue to be our top priority, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Please see our blog for more info on pandemic response.

Straightforward Guidance Through Complicated Family Law Issues

In family law, the stakes are always high. After all, the outcome of your case affects your most intimate relationships. At Ed Shaw Law, you can count on our lawyers for honest, compassionate advice in difficult situations. We’ll let you know what to expect and guide you through the process in the easiest, most cost-effective way possible.

With offices in Brainerd and St. Cloud, we have over 22 years of experience in family law in Minnesota. We can help you with:

  • The divorce process, from child custody to division of property
  • Child custody, support and parenting time agreements for unmarried parents
  • Modifications and enforcement of existing child support, child custody and spousal support agreements
  • Paternity determinations, including effects on custody and support
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Orders for protection and restraining orders against domestic abuse
  • Child protection
  • Adoption
  • Family law issues related to LGBT and nontraditional relationships

Family law issues often intersect with other areas of the law. For example, property division in divorce may involve real estate law, business law or estate planning. With our firm’s broad experience, you can rest assured that we can take care of any related issues as well.

Straight Talk When It Matters Most

There are no guarantees in court, and we’re not going to promise you the impossible. Instead, we’ll build reasonable expectations from the start and work for the best possible outcome. We are experienced litigators, but we won’t take your issue to court if we don’t need to. We offer mediation for divorce and other family law issues.
