Minnesota Spousal Maintenance Law


Spousal maintenance (also known as alimony) is an area of law which typically results in very acrimonious and unfriendly proceedings between the parties. We have successfully represented clients in many Minnesota spousal maintenance cases where one party's request for maintenance is contested.

The Statutes of Minnesota provide a description of general provisions considered in addressing the spousal maintenance issue, including:

  • the respective incomes of the parties
  • the respective expenses of the parties, and their children
  • property division between the parties
  • training/employment experience of the parties
  • the standard of living established during the marriage
  • earnings or seniority foregone or sacrificed by parties during their marriage
  • length of absence from employment, if any
  • the ages, physical conditions, and mental conditions of the parties

We use the above factors to create a very involved and detailed argument regarding the appropriateness of any spousal maintenance award. Interested in learning more about alimony and the different types of property? Visit our Spousal Maintenance FAQ section.
