Protecting Your Rights When It Comes To Court-Ordered Obligations

Depending on the facts of your divorce case, a court may order one spouse to pay spousal support to the other party. The court may determine the amount and duration of the support award. 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

Given the wide discretion that courts have to fashion spousal support awards, it is critical that you have a skilled attorney on your side who can negotiate a favorable resolution on your behalf or make a compelling argument at trial.

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.
