Spousal Support: A Problem Area in Divorce

Alimony, or spousal support, can be granted to either a husband or a wife. It can be temporary or permanent. It can be awarded as one sum or in regular payments. Spousal support may continue to the death or remarriage of the beneficiary or it can be ordered for a specifically designated time period by the court or by agreement between the parties.

It is always in your interests to come to agreements outside of court during a divorce. When difficulties arise, mediation can be a workable alternative. The lawyers at the firm can help you to negotiate a settlement and avoid costly litigation. If necessary, they are always prepared to defend your rights in court. While the law does not specifically lay out how to determine alimony, there are factors that an experienced Douglas County divorce attorney from the firm has seen to be relevant in most cases.

These include:

  • The financial resources of each
  • The current income of each
  • The standard of living for both during the course of the marriage
  • Non-financial contributions to the marriage such as care of children and involvement in the career expansion of the other
