Understanding Alimony in Minnesota

Spousal maintenance, also referred to as spousal support or alimony, is not automatic when couples get divorced in Minnesota. If awarded, the court can issue a permanent or temporary maintenance order. There are a number of factors that the court considers in making its determination such as:

  • One spouse's need versus the other spouse's ability to pay
  • The earning capacity of the spouse seeking maintenance
  • The amount of time it would take for the spouse seeking rehabilitative maintenance to obtain employment or the necessary training to do so
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The age and health of the spouse seeking maintenance

When you hire our firm, we work diligently to present the most compelling argument possible to support your position. You can also feel confident knowing we will protect all your financial concerns involving the distribution of your marital estate.
