Wondering About Spousal Maintenance In Minnesota?

Spousal maintenance, referred to in the past as alimony or spousal support, is a common issue of dispute during divorces in Minnesota. In order to obtain all you deserve — or to avoid paying more than you are obligated to pay — seek the guidance of a skilled and experienced lawyer.

How Is Spousal Maintenance Calculated?

Spousal maintenance is designed to make certain that each spouse maintains his or her lifestyle as much as possible post-divorce. Unlike child support payments, there are no set guidelines for calculating spousal maintenance.

However, there are certain factors that must always be considered, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s level of income
  • The earning capacity of both spouses
  • The established need of one spouse, and the other’s ability to pay
  • Other factors as appropriate

Our goal is to make certain that any spousal maintenance award is fair to you.
