Spousal Maintenance (Alimony) in Minnesota

In Minnesota, Spousal Maintenance (Alimony) is based upon need, and unlike Child Support, Spousal Maintenance does not provide the parties with a formula to determine if – and for what duration of time – money should be paid to one spouse during Divorce proceedings (through a temporary order) or after a Divorce.  The whole process can rather confusing to the parties.  Our role is to ensure that a spousal maintenance award is fair and equitable based on the facts and circumstances of the case.
