Spousal Maintenance and Your Financial Future
Spousal maintenance, or alimony, is a support payment that one spouse pays to the other spouse. It is not the same as child support. You might be the spouse who is seeking spousal maintenance. Or, you might be the spouse from whom spousal maintenance is sought. Either way, it is vitally important that you retain counsel who has significant experience with this issue.
This is because under Minnesota law, there are multiple factors that govern an award of spousal maintenance. The law gives each judge to the discretion to determine how to apply the factors. Since most cases are resolved in the Financial Early Neutral Process, the court-appointed evaluator also has discretion when making recommendations. Only an attorney with experience can navigate the complexities of spousal maintenance, and the personalities who make the decisions, and represent your interests effectively.
