Minnesota Family Law Attorneys Helping You Understand Your Rights

Spousal support and spousal maintenance (formerly called “alimony”) is a murky issue in Minnesota, to say the least. The court looks at so many different factors when considering spousal maintenance awards that it can be difficult for some attorneys to predict an outcome. If you are facing a divorce, spousal support and maintenance are likely issues that may arise. Make sure you work with experienced attorneys who can help you understand your rights and make sure you get the best outcome possible.

We can help you get a clearer understand of what support you may be entitled to or what you are going to be obligated to pay for maintenance. Our Mankato alimony attorneys are focused on solving problems.

Minnesota Spousal Support Factors for Court Consideration

  • The incomes of both parties
  • The earning capacity and potential for increase in earning potential of each party
  • The standard of living enjoyed during the marriage
  • The age and health of each party
