Developing A Spousal Maintenance (Alimony) Plan

Divorce is a major change, but alimony, or spousal support, is designed to ease the transition for both parties. At the Minneapolis law offices of Burns & Hansen, P.A., we help people across the Twin Cities region come up with a spousal support plan that makes sense as part of their total divorce settlement. Whether you are fighting for support, or you want to protect your own assets, we will protect your rights as we search for solutions.

Why It Is Important To Have Strong Representation For Spousal Maintenance

The hardest issue to resolve in Minnesota family law is spousal maintenance. The spouse who wants alimony will almost always have to fight for it in court, as there is no guarantee that either spouse will get it in dissolution. As a fiercely contested issue, you want to make sure you are prepared for a potential legal battle over spousal maintenance.

Our lawyers are no strangers to the courtroom, and we will be prepared to take your case to trial. In all cases, the biggest mistake you can make is to assume too much. The court gives spousal maintenance careful consideration and is sensitive to the needs of both parties in each individual case.

The wrong alimony plan could hamstring one, or both parties, while the right plan allows both parties to move on. Discuss your rights and your options with an attorney. We will consider spousal support in the context of your full divorce, child support, and property settlement, and make sure you have everything you need to move on.
