Spousal support may be the most misunderstood area in all of family law. The issues of alimony, spousal support and maintenance do not have to be overwhelming for you. I hope I can dispel some of the myths and guide you in the right direction.
I have been handling these issues for years at my Toledo, Ohio, law firm and focus my effort on finding solutions both parties can live with. As a family law attorney and clinical social worker, I understand the importance of finding amicable solutions that allow people to move forward after a divorce and to protect their quality of life.
How Is It Decided Whether Or Not Spousal Support Is Awarded?
Spousal support is awarded in situations where one of the spouses is lacking financial resources, property or the ability to earn a significant living. The goal of maintenance is to provide for the spouse’s reasonable needs and expenses post-divorce. The conflict in these matters often involves what is reasonable, and in ensuring that accurate financial information has been used to consider whether or not maintenance should be granted.
In your meeting with me, we can discuss strategy for maximizing your position. In some cases maintenance will be permanent or long-term, while other cases will result in temporary maintenance. It all depends on the unique factors present in a divorce.
