Divorce & Family Law

A Firm Where Your Family Matters

Few things may be as traumatic to families than separation and divorce, especially when there are substantial assets and liabilities involved and complex parenting plans to develop and agree upon. The process can seem frightening – even mind numbing. The truth is, for many clients, divorce can be their first real exposure to the family law court system.

Gilbert Alden attorneys Beth Wiberg Barbosa and Matthew J. Gilbert have been helping people like you through the divorce process for two decades. Their focus? Complicated cases involving substantial marital assets. Both Beth and Matt have lengthy and well-established track records representing people in complex, high-risk cases.

We Know the Complexities You Face In Your Divorce

The family law practice at Gilbert Alden is focused on high net worth marital asset division, valuing and dividing businesses, tracing non-marital assets, and dealing with complex tax planning issues including how stock option plans are divided in a divorce. Our team has significant experience advocating for – or eliminating – spousal maintenance or alimony awards. In fact, partner Beth Wiberg Barbosa was able to weigh in on the issues surrounding the deductibility and reporting of spousal maintenance in the government’s proposed tax plan in a published opinion piece in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
