Spousal Maintenance

Experienced Spousal Maintenance Attorneys Burnsville, MN
Handling High-Asset Divorces in Minnesota Since 1992

Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony, was traditionally awarded to women who were stay-at-home moms. Over time, the law has been modified to reflect the changing nature of our society as households commonly have two income earners or stay-at-home dads.

Since 1992, the lawyers at Burns Law Office have effectively handled complicated divorces involving extensive assets. John Burns and his associates consistently ensure a fair spousal support agreement is reached, regardless of gender.

Protecting Clients with Alimony Concerns

Over more than 15 years, our law firm’s founding attorney John Burns has represented hundreds of clients in spousal maintenance matters. His background includes protecting clients in high-asset divorces, making sure all assets and debts are considered. He consults forensic accountants when necessary to ensure his clients’ living situation is accurately portrayed.

The attorneys can prevent clients from paying alimony to parties who are financially secure. We are well-prepared to meet clients’ needs based on their unique situations. We can explain the factors used to determine spousal support, such as:

  • Length of marriage
  • Spouses’ income level
  • Age and health of each spouse
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Spouses earning potential based on their educational level

Be aware that allegations of domestic violence or child support violations can quickly destroy one’s chances of obtaining spousal support.
