Wayzata Spousal Maintenance Attorney

For many of our clients, concerns about how basic living expenses will be met following separation and divorce is a primary focus. Spousal maintenance and child support are many times the biggest financial considerations for individuals going through divorce. An important step to take is to make sure that you have an experienced lawyer on your side, helping you through every step of the financial, legal and emotional side of a divorce.

The experienced team at Nordaune & Friesen has been helping individuals in Wayzata and throughout the surrounding Twin Cities west metro area since 1983. We offer personalized representation for our clients and have a proven track record handling complex divorce and family law matters.

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance (often referred to as alimony) may be awarded based on a number of different factors, including length of the marriage, the lifestyle you enjoyed with your spouse, the ability to meet continuing expenses through your income, the need for spousal support and more. Support may be awarded on a short- or long-term basis, all of which depend on the details of your specific situation. Our Wayzata spousal maintenance lawyers will help explain the factors that the courts will look at when determining maintenance and how that affects your situation.

Calculating Child Support

In Minnesota, child support calculations are based on guidelines, which evaluate the number of children you have, each parent's income (including self-employed parents and business owner's income) and more. While these calculations may seem straightforward, it is important you have an experienced lawyer evaluating the circumstances of your situation. At Nordaune & Friesen, we offer guidance for all divorce-related issues that involve children, including custody and visitation.
