Understanding the types of alimony available through divorce


When Minnesota couples marry, they tend not to consider the possibility of the union ending in divorce. Yet, no matter the length of the marriage, if it is clear that a marriage is no longer working, divorce is likely the best option to take if the relationship is unsalvageable. While this means taking the time to consider any and all divorce issues, one thing tends to stand out for most spouses: finances. Ensuring that one's post-divorce finances are in check is essential when moving forward with dissolution, which is why some spouses request alimony during the divorce process.

What should you consider when going through a same-sex divorce?


Getting married is an exciting event for couples in Minnesota and elsewhere. Whether it's a straight marriage or same-sex marriage, spouses do not enter into this union with the idea that it will end. Nonetheless, divorces do occur, causing many concerns and challenges for couples. While same-sex couples have been afforded the constitutional right to marriage, this does not mean that their ability to divorce is as easy. In fact, the divorce process has the tendency to be more challenging for same-sex partners when compared to opposite-sex partners.
