Personalized Representation for Your Alimony Case
Alimony is intended not as a punishment for a high-income spouse, but rather as a way to support a lower-earning spouse who contributed to the household and now needs to reenter the workforce, get an education, or become financially independent.
Alimony may be ordered if:
- One spouse was unemployed while the other worked
- One spouse helped the other advance their education or career
- There is a drastic difference in income between the spouses
Alimony is not ordered in every divorce. You and your spouse reserve the right to reach your own alimony order, but a judge will step in if you cannot. If a family court judge finds that one spouse is entitled to alimony, he or she will calculate an appropriate support award.
When determining alimony, judges consider factors such as:
- Each spouse’s income, assets, and debts
- The length of the marriage
- Whether either spouse contributed to the other’s education or career advancement
- Whether one spouse caused the breakdown of the relationship
- Each spouse’s mental and physical health
- Any terms outlined in a prenuptial agreement
