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.

I will work with you to develop a plan that addresses the priorities and needs of both you and your children. From your initial consultation through to finalizing the divorce, I will work to preserve your best interests every step of the way.”
Meanwhile, she also wants to point out that the state law on child support is based on the concept that a child has the right to benefit from the income of both parents and it doesn’t matter whether the parent is custodial or non-custodial. 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 rich, or even a billionaire, the non-custodial parent is still required to pay child support. Minnesota’s child support guidelines, therefore, are based on the income of the non-custodial parent. Although there are many factors to be taken into account by the court of law in specifying the actual amount of child support, in most cases, the amount determined based on child support guidelines. In general, the amount of child support is based on the non-custodial parent’s net income and the number of children, but not more than $6,975.
As part of the Lisa Amundson family law attorney services, she provides free initial consultation for people who are facing spousal maintenance and child support issues and require legal help regarding various divorce issues. It is important to note that spousal maintenance or alimony, was previously simply awarded to stay-at-home mothers. However, the courts had to reexamine the issue about spousal maintenance because of the increasing number dual-income households and changes in society. Currently, courts have to ensure that they assess the particular financial situation of each divorcing couple instead of just basing their decisions on archaic gender roles.
When working with a client, Lisa Amundson makes sure that she fully understands his or her situation in order to provide the answers to any questions that the client may have. The initial consultation she offers for free will allow the client the chance to ask questions and to discover if they would like the firm to handle their case.
