Spousal Maintenance / Alimony / Spousal Support
In many divorces, one spouse must thereafter pay the other alimony – also known as spousal maintenance or spousal support. A divorce may dramatically alter one spouse’s financial situation. In these cases, spousal maintenance may be a viable option to allow the receiving spouse a chance to resume his or her life and work towards financial independence.
Taken into account when deciding the amount and length of alimony payments are:
- Education level of receiving spouse
- Earning potential of receiving spouse
- Medical status (whether spouse requires medical treatments, medications, etc.)
- Length of marriage
- Employment, if any, during marriage
There are maintenance options available to meet any number of needs. Alimony can be issued as temporary or permanent and for any amount of time. Our family law attorneys handle the most complex of spousal support cases. Contact us now to talk about your situation.
