Skilled Spousal Support and Alimony Attorneys
There are two basic types of spousal support, rehabilitative alimony and permanent alimony. Courts look at a number of factors in determining whether spousal maintenance is necessary and the type and amount of spousal support. Some of the factors considered when determining alimony payments include the education of the spouses, work experience, income history, age, health, length of the marriage, and time out of the work force.
We work closely with our clients to reach amicable agreements on spousal support and alimony. By closely examining the standard of living of the family and the income potential of each spouse, we are often able to avoid spousal support and alimony litigation. When litigation is necessary, we aggressively defend the interests of our clients. We recognize that alimony payments can have a significant impact on the lives of our clients. Our main objective in handling issues associated with spousal maintenance payments is to work out a resolution that allows our client to move forward with their life.
Like most on-going issues involved in the dissolution of a marriage, alimony payments can be modified and adjusted as the circumstances change. We are committed to helping clients seeking to adjust spousal support orders as income levels changes, people remarry, or other life changes create the need to adjust existing maintenance orders.
