Spousal Support

Reliable Guidance Every Step of the Way

When a couple divorces, they may not be able to maintain the same lifestyle they enjoyed during the marriage. In some cases, one spouse has relied on the other for financial support, whether it’s because of a disability, a disparity in their incomes, or an agreement they made together. Spousal support (or alimony) can allow that lower-earning spouse to have some financial support based on their circumstances. If you’re concerned about spousal support, make sure you retain a lawyer who understands what the courts will factor into their decision.

Spousal support may be awarded based on:

  • Income of each spouse
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Earning capacity of each spouse
  • Health of each spouse
  • And more

The court will generally aim for the lower-earning spouse to become self-sufficient, but the outcome in your case will depend on your situation. When you sit down with our exceptional family law attorneys, we will analyze your case and let you know what you can expect. We will then present you with a strategy to tackle your spousal support issues effectively.
