You Can Trust The Experience Of Fred M. Kennedy, P.C.
When it comes to acquiring spousal support, the state considers any existing debt, the length of the marriage, financial contribution of spouses, ages of spouses, standard of living, retirement accounts, the impact of taxes, education levels as well as any sacrifices made throughout the marriage.
While issues such as child support have long-established requirements, spousal support and alimony do not. Thus, alimony is not guaranteed, nor is it permanent. Even so, it is enforceable once it is granted, and it may be collected through garnishment of wages or contempt. Because the issue of alimony is complex and each case is unique, it’s up to an experienced lawyer to protect the rights of those hoping to receive support.
