Alimony is generally based on one spouse’s need balanced against the other’s ability to pay. These cases can become complex and it is important to seek the advice of an attorney who understands the law and will fight to protect you.
Depending on the situation, spousal support can be awarded on a temporary or permanent basis. Temporary support calculations are based on statewide guidelines and can be awarded for a set period of time while the divorce is pending. Permanent support is based on a number of factors. When you hire our firm, we will do everything we can to ensure that you receive fair treatment under the law and work for a settlement that serves your interests.
The respective income of the two spouses plays a huge role in this determination. The length of the marriage – typically, over ten years is considered a “long-term marriage” – is the second largest factor.
Our alimony lawyers have a complete understanding of the law in these cases and the factors that go into making support calculations. We work diligently to see that your interests are protected above all else. Our experience with both sides of these cases allows us to be much more proactive in search of a positive result on your behalf.
