Case Studies

Dismissal of Order for Protection Domestic Abuse Case
(Carver County, Minnesota 2015):

When a father was served with a motion brought by his ex-wife to extend an Order for Protection (“OFP”) for an additional 2 years, he contacted Gadtke & Beyer for help.  After investigating the facts surrounding the situation, the Gadtke & Beyer trial team, led by attorney Rob Gadtke discovered that there was no legal grounds for extending the OFP.  After defending the father in a contested court hearing, the Judge dismissed the Order for Protection.  The father is now able to see his daughter without restriction.

Mother awarded multi-million dollar settlement
(Hennepin County, Minnesota 2015):

Mother had been a stay-at-home mom for the duration of the parties’ marriage.  Years after the parties separated, Father received a multi-million dollar settlement following the buyout of his former employer, but argued that it was his non-marital property.  The Gadtke & Beyer team, led by attorney Marc Beyer, successfully negotiated a settlement for Mother in which all of the settlement was considered marital property, resulting in a seven figure property settlement for Mother.

Father receives sole legal custody and sole physical custody of his children
(Wright County, Minnesota 2015)

After learning that his wife (who had a history of drug and alcohol addiction) intended to seek sole custody of their children due to his work-related travel schedule, a father contacted Gadtke & Beyer for help.  During the discovery phase of the case, the Gadtke & Beyer trial team, led by attorney Rob Gadtke, discovered evidence showing that wife continued to use prohibited substances in a manner that adversely affected the children’s well-being.  After numerous evaluations and contested court hearing, wife’s parenting time was suspended.  The case finally ended when both the wife and the Judge agreed that the children’s best interests required father to have sole legal and sole physical custody.  The children are now thriving in a safe, predictable environment.

Mother ordered to pay child support arrears
(Ramsey County, Minnesota 2015)

Mother refused to pay father child support over the course of 15 years.  Father sought the assistance of Gadtke & Beyer.  The Gadtke & Beyer trial team, led by attorney Marc Beyer, filed a motion seeking to collect child support arrears.  Following a contested hearing, the Court ordered Mother to pay Father over $35,000 within 30 days.

Mother receives sole legal custody and physical custody of her children.
(Dakota County, Minnesota 2015)

After being assaulted by her husband in front of her children, mother contacted Gadtke & Beyer for help.  The Gadtke & Beyer trial team, led by attorney Rob Gadtke negotiated a settlement that protected the safety of the child by ensuring that father could no longer have contact with her unless approved by the court.  Mother and daughter are both doing well.  Daughter is in the process of choosing a college.

Father’s overtime income is excluded from his income in calculating child support
(Anoka County, Minnesota 2015)

Father had the same job for 20+ years that regularly paid him overtime income.  Ordinarily, with these facts, the overtime income would be included in determining Father’s child support obligation.  But, Father also had four kids, and could not afford guideline’s child support.  He contacted Gadtke & Beyer for help.  The Gadtke & Beyer trial team, led by attorney Marc Beyer, successfully convinced the Court to deviate downward from the child support guidelines and exclude the overtime income.

Wife receives the uncontested divorce she needed
(Scott County, Minnesota 2015)

With her son away at college, wife decided that it was time for her to take a new path.  She contacted Gadtke & Beyer for help.  The Gadtke & Beyer team, led by attorney Rob Gadtke, determined that it was possible for wife to achieve her divorce goals without conflict or animosity.  They worked with her to ensure that the negotiated settlement protected her long-term best interests.

Father awarded his worker’s compensation settlement as his non-marital property
(Dakota County, 2015)

Shortly after the Father and Mother separated, Father was awarded a worker’s compensation settlement for injuries sustained on the job.  When Mother argued that the settlement should be considered by the Court in determining Father’s child support obligation, Father turned to the Gadtke & Beyer trial team, led by attorney Marc Beyer, for help.  The Court ruled that the worker’s compensation settlement was Father’s nonmarital property, and Mother was not entitled to any of the money as back child support.

Bob – Spousal Maintenance Client (2015)

"At age 65, I contacted Marc Beyer to help me with a spousal maintenance reduction regarding my ex-wife. Even though I was retired with a reduction in income, I knew this was not going to be easy. In fact, I had interviewed 3 lawyers for this job along with 2 other lawyers I had used previously. I feel very fortunate I chose Marcus for this difficult task. From the beginning, he has shown such professionalism; and, I have never once been disappointed. In my case, there were years of details and financials to digest, understand and present in a meaningful way."

"This was my first experience working with an attorney, in the beginning it all seemed so overwhelming during what was already a very stressful time. At my initial consultation, Marc Beyer walked me through the entire divorce process; he broke it down into phases which helped me to understand the end to end view. Our desire was to expedite the divorce as amicably as possible so we could move on with our lives with limited added stress to the family.  Not only was Marc able to deliver on an expedited case, he was extremely responsive, always kept me apprised about my case and answered all of my questions promptly.  I would highly recommend Marc Beyer of Gadtke & Beyer as your divorce attorney."
