Protecting Your Rights When It Comes To Court-Ordered Obligations
Depending on the facts of your divorce case, a court can order one spouse to continue supporting the other financially. The amount and duration of the support varies — in some cases, it can be permanent. When reviewing spousal support claims, the court will consider a wide range of factors, including:
- The length of the marriage
- Both spouses' education
- The financial resources and needs of the parties
- The lifestyle enjoyed by the parties during the marriage
Judges have broad discretion when it comes to calculating spousal support amounts, making it imperative that you have a skilled attorney on your side to represent your interests.
When representing clients in divorces involving spousal support claims, I take time to carefully review their financial circumstances. I will analyze your case from a broad perspective to take into account the total impact of issues such as property division, child custody and child support. By taking a global perspective on such matters, I can better protect your rights and financial interests.
