Family is different for everyone.

The law is not.

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance (also called alimony or spousal support) may be ordered by the court during a divorce, on either a temporary or permanent basis. Other couples may choose to include it in the divorce settlement.

Legal, financial and taxation issues complicate the alimony question. We will help you navigate.


Protecting Your Rights and Interests

In Minnesota, there is no set formula for spousal maintenance as there is for child support.

In cases where spousal maintenance is an issue, we will assertively protect your rights and interests.


Opting Out of Alimony

When alimony may be optional, we will carefully examine the financial and taxation issues in your case.

Sometimes, it may be better to negotiate a property division settlement rather than insisting on alimony.

Whatever your situation, you can depend on our firm to represent you with skill and determination.
