Spousal Support And Divorce

Spousal support, traditionally referred to as alimony, must be decided in many divorce proceedings. Support may be granted to either spouse. The length and amount of support are determined on a case-by-case basis, which is why it is important to protect your interests with the help of skilled legal counsel.

Making A Support Determination

Spousal support is necessary in cases where one party has come to rely on the financial assistance of the other. This is often seen in cases where someone may have difficulty re-entering the workforce because he or she spent most of the marriage taking care of the home. Other situations where support may become an issue is if one party has a disability that limits his or her ability to earn income, or if one party put off continuing his or her education to allow the other party to focus on his or her career.

Unlike child support determinations, there are no clear guidelines for determining when a party should receive support, for how long and in what amount. That is why legal help is essential, regardless of whether you are seeking support or being asked to pay it.
