How Do I Prove My Spouse is Crazy in a Minnesota Divorce Case?
From time to time a client will come to me, excited that he or she has figured out a sure-fire way to win custody, because he or she has personally diagnosed the spouse with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS), or some other mental illness.
Unfortunately, nobody is going to take your word for it. For such an argument to carry any weight whatsoever, you will have to obtain a diagnosis from a qualified professional. This normally is accomplished through the custody evaluation process. Other times, you may need to hire your own expert.

Marital property, which is all assets and debts acquired during the marriage, is divided equitably, in a manner the Minnesota court believes is fair. Separate property is not considered marital property, and it includes property acquired before marriage, gifts and inheritances. The increase in value in this property is also separate property.
