Family Law Attorneys Serving the Minneapolis/St. Paul Metro
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:
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.
