Alimony and Spousal Support

While alimony is not granted in every divorce, one spouse can request monetary support on a temporary or permanent basis while a case is ongoing or after a case is concluded.  Alimony is typically determined by the following factors:

  • Each partner’s income and role during the marriage
  • Which partner has primary residential care of the children
  • Tangible and intangible property value during the marriage
  • A disadvantaged spouse’s education and job skills
  • The fault of partner in disrupting the marriage
  • The length of the marriage and the age of the parties
  • The physical and mental health of a spouse

How a Divorce Lawyer Assists with Alimony & Support Cases

I carefully examine all factors in the marriage to help determine if alimony is justified, what amount should be given, and for how long.  If you are currently under a court order to pay alimony and spousal support and need an increase in payments or need to decrease the payments you are making because of a change in your circumstances, I can provide you legal assistance with adjusting or terminating alimony payments.

Alimony awards can also include provisions for continuation of health insurance and life insurance, possession of a marital residence, and lump sum awards.
