How Does Minnesota Handle Asset Division?
Minnesota is an equitable property state. This means that any assets you or your spouse acquire during the marriage, with the exception of inheritances and gifts, are subject to division. You and your partner have the option to compromise on how you distribute your assets and debts. If you do not arrive at a private settlement, the court will issue an equitable distribution decree.
Will I Receive Spousal Support? Will I Pay It?
In Minnesota, judges use a set of guidelines to calculate child support, but not spousal maintenance. When determining whether to issue alimony and how much, courts consider issues such as:
- Separate assets
- Earning potential
- Length of the marriage
- The contribution to the marriage
- Whether one spouse left their career to raise children or maintain the home
We cannot provide a specific estimate of your spousal support amount over the internet. When you sit down with us to discuss divorce or another family legal matter, we can evaluate your finances and your marital circumstances. Then, we can provide a realistic idea of what you can expect.
