Spousal Support

Spousal Support (Alimony): Because divorces often cause financial inequities to occur, it is often necessary to seek support to provide for the needs of one spouse. Spousal Support, once called alimony, concerns itself with providing financial support for the spouse that is financially burdened by divorce. Spousal Support is not guaranteed, but is warranted under certain circumstances. This includes cases the needs of the parties, health of the parties, ability of the parties to work, past custom, and length of marriage – among others.
