Maintenance (Alimony)

In many divorce cases, one question to consider is “Will I be eligible to receive maintenance from my former spouse?” 

While all divorce cases are unique, there are statutory guidelines which the courts may consider when assessing whether one party is a candidate for maintenance.   They are as follows:

  1. 1. You and your spouse’s income.
  2. 2. The length of the marriage.
  3. 3. Health issues.
  4. 4. The potential earning capacities of each spouse.
  5. 5. The standard of living during the marriage.

It is important to note that while the courts rely on the statutory factors, we will evaluate your case based on your individual needs and work to obtain a fair and appropriate settlement.  Our goal is to protect your present and future interests.
