Minneapolis Spousal Maintenance Attorneys

Spousal maintenance, sometimes referred to as alimony or spousal support, is a very complex area of the law. In Minnesota, there is no fixed formula for determining the amount or duration of spousal maintenance. Spousal maintenance is usually determined by the needs of the party requesting it and the ability of the other party to pay. At Robinson | Duffy, PLLC, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, our alimony attorneys strive to find solutions that are fair and in your best interests. We will carefully analyze your situation to help you determine whether or not spousal maintenance is appropriate.

Spousal maintenance may or may not be part of your divorce. In addition to the need of the requesting spouse and the other spouse’s ability to pay the court looks at a number of factors, including:

  • The standard of living established during the marriage;
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The loss of earnings, seniority, retirement benefits, and other employment opportunities forgone by the spouse seeking alimony;
  • The age, and the physical and emotional condition of the spouse seeking alimony;
  • The ability of the spouse from whom alimony is sought to meet needs while meeting those of the spouse seeking alimony; and

Spousal maintenance may be permanent or temporary. If you believe your divorce is going to include an award of spousal maintenance, contact our attorneys today. Spousal maintenance issues are complex and can affect the rest of your life.
