Spousal Maintenance Support Alimony
In a divorce, one household becomes two, and there is often a significant disparity between the earning potential of each spouse. In some situations, it is appropriate for one spouse to provide income to the other in the form of spousal maintenance (also known as spousal support or alimony.)
If you are getting divorced in Minnesota and have questions or concerns about spousal maintenance, the attorneys at Kennedy & Kennedy Law Office are here for you. We have extensive experience handling divorce and family law matters for clients in Mankato and throughout the surrounding areas.
Factors To Consider
Courts have broad discretion when ruling on spousal maintenance issues. Some of the factors they consider when determining the amount and duration of support include:
- The financial resources of each party
- The age and physical condition of each party
- The duration of the marriage
- The standard of living during the marriage
- The contributions of each spouse to the marital property
