Spousal Support and Alimony
Spousal maintenance, frequently referred to as alimony or spousal support, is determined on a case-by-case basis in Minnesota. Establishing maintenance depends primarily on the individual income of each spouse, but there are other factors that are considered in making this determination.
Spousal Maintenance In Minnesota
There is no set formula or calculation for determining spousal support in Minnesota. Whether you are seeking alimony or fighting your responsibility to pay or the amount thereof, the attorneys of Johnston | Martineau, PLLP, will work for you protecting your rights and your finances.
Permanent or temporary support may be ordered by the court depending on:
• Living expenses of both parties
• Standard of living during the marriage
• Income level of each person
• Time and education/training required to enable the spouse seeking maintenance to find employment
Establishing effective spousal support agreements requires an in-depth knowledge of the guidelines. We provide a fair and accurate analysis of your case and advise you on what type of settlement you can expect.
