Spousal Support / Alimony In Southern Minnesota

Minnesota Family Law Attorneys Helping You Understand Your Rights

Spousal support and spousal maintenance (formerly called “alimony”) is a murky issue in Minnesota, to say the least. The court looks at so many different factors when considering spousal maintenance awards that it can be difficult for inexperienced attorneys to predict an outcome. If you are facing a divorce, spousal support and maintenance are likely issues that may arise. Make sure you work with experienced attorneys who can help you understand your rights and make sure you get the best outcome possible.

At Kohlmeyer Hagen Law Office, we have been handling family law matters like spousal support and maintenance for a long time. We can help you get a clearer understand of what support you may be entitled to or what you are going to be obligated to pay for maintenance. Our Mankato & Rochester alimony attorneys are focused on solving problems.

Unfortunately, in Minnesota, unlike some other states, we don’t have a calculator that determines the amount of spousal support.  Spousal support is really dependent upon the experience and skill to make sure your interests are covered throughout the divorce and to get you the best deal possible.

Minnesota Spousal Support Factors for Court Consideration

The court looks at all of the facts of the case to determine the most equitable arrangement for spousal support. Some of the important factors that the court considers in this regard include:

  • The incomes of both parties
  • The earning capacity and potential for an increase in earning potential of each party
  • The standard of living enjoyed during the marriage
  • The age and health of each party

We have a wealth of experience in spousal support matters, with a thorough understanding of how the court will approach these factors. We will help you get the best results possible in your case.
