The Lawcenter focuses on maximizing our client’s interest, whether it be increasing or reducing potential support payments when in dispute. Spousal support is calculated using both subjective and objective criteria.
When determining potential liability, the time of separation may be integral in determining your rights and what you are entitled to. A long term marriage may result in different requirements than a shorter marriage. Courts will consider the skills of each party, the income and assets of each party, age and health, and various other factors, including history of domestic violence.
Because it takes time to obtain court orders on complex matters or if quick relief is necessary, a court may provide for temporary spousal support. Our office can help you determine if you have a case for support, provide realistic expectations for you, and advocate in your best interest.
Similarly to our child support legal counsel, we also handle spousal support modification and enforcement. Our office will explore substantial changes in circumstances with you that may justify an adjusted support order.
