When financial hardship is added into the mix, the process becomes even more burdensome.
That’s why it’s critical to work with an attorney who can help you understand your rights when it comes to spousal support, or alimony.
Unlike child support payments, which are meant to benefit the wellbeing of the kids, alimony payments go directly to the former spouse.
If you and your former partner had unequal earning power while you were married, one of you may be required to financially support the other.
When you contact our office, we can help you determine whether or not you may qualify for such support during your divorce proceedings. And, if you were the breadwinner during your marriage, we can help you determine fair payments that will support your next chapter.
