Maintenance AlimonyWhen marriages end, one spouse may be entitled to maintenance (sometimes referred to as alimony). Whether a spouse is entitled to maintenance, and if so how much and for how long, are complex issues. I have the knowledge and experience to guide you through these difficult issues. Whether you believe you are entitled to maintenance, or you believe you may have to pay maintenance, you should get sound legal advice early.
Spousal support may be determined by analyzing a number of factors. You and your spouse may be able to come to a creative agreement that addresses your unique needs and concerns, or the court will decide the matter of you are unable to agree. In determining spousal support a judge will look at these issues:
- The length of the marriage
- The standard of living the parties enjoyed during the marriage
- Each party’s contribution, monetary and non-monetary, to the marriage
- Each party’s income, earnings and assets
- Any financial obligations of each party
- The education and job skills of each spouse
- The age and health of both parties
