Minnesota is an equitable distribution state, meaning that marital assets are to be divided in a manner that is fair, but not necessarily in a manner that is equal. Property you had before the marriage is typically treated differently than property you obtain together during the marriage.

Spousal maintenance is designed to make certain that each spouse maintains his or her lifestyle as much as possible post-divorce. Unlike child support payments, there are no set guidelines for calculating spousal maintenance.However, there are certain factors that must always be considered, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s level of income
  • The earning capacity of both spouses
  • The established need of one spouse, and the other’s ability to pay
  • Other factors as appropriate

Our goal is to make certain that any spousal maintenance award is fair to you.
