Twin Cities Family Law Attorneys Seeking Equitable Solutions in Spousal Maintenance Matters

Divorce often has a significant impact on your finances. One of the most important issues relating to your finances is the issue of spousal maintenance. Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony, is a court-ordered award to one former spouse from another in a divorce. Courts have discretion in deciding whether or not to make an award of spousal maintenance. As a result, your choice of lawyer can make a real difference on whether you achieve your goals.

If you and your spouse cannot agree on spousal maintenance terms, the court will weigh a number of factors in deciding whether to award spousal maintenance. These factors include:

  • Income, potential income and other financial resources of both parties
  • Length of the marriage
  • Lifestyle led during the marriage
  • Health of the parties
  • Level of education completed
  • Work experience
  • Career sacrifice by one spouse to support the other

Depending on the circumstances, spousal maintenance can be awarded on a permanent or temporary basis. If you are paying or receiving spousal maintenance in the years following your divorce and need to modify your arrangements based on a substantial change of circumstances, our law firm is able to accomplish your goals as well.
