Providing Comprehensive Spousal Support Representation

Spousal support is money that is paid by one spouse, either temporarily or permanently, to maintain the receiving spouse’s standard of living during or after the divorce. It is also commonly referred to as alimony or spousal maintenance.

Temporary support is used to maintain the status quo while the divorce is pending. The amount of temporary alimony is often determined based on certain guidelines.

Permanent support may be awarded after the divorce or after the expiration of temporary support. To determine the amount of permanent support, the family court will balance various factors as they relate to each spouse, including:

  • Income
  • Lifestyle
  • Health
  • Education
  • Employability
  • Physical or mental disability
  • The length of the marriage
  • Debt incurred during the marriage
  • Financial situation
  • Ability to pay
  • Domestic violence
