There are many aspect of a divorce that makes the divorce process seem overwhelming. Of course, the most common one is learning and adapting to live on your own. It is especially difficult when one party to the marriage was the one that supported the family financially. The other party is now faced with having to fend for themselves. There are, however, ways of obtaining a court order that remedies this issue which your spousal support attorney can help you get. The disadvantaged party may be entitled to spousal support, also known as alimony. An experienced family law attorney will make sure you receive the alimony that you deserve.
When making a determination as to how much spousal support, if any, should be granted courts examine many factors. For instance, a court may look at:
- Length of marriage
- Earning potential of both parties
- Difference in income
- Expenses of both parties
There are also standards that guide the court to make a decision as to the duration of spousal support. Spousal support may be granted indefinitely or until the other party remarries, or it may be granted for a set period of time.
