During a divorce, the emotional and financial burden can seem overwhelming, but with strong guidance from an experienced attorney, you can learn about your options and shape the process to meet your needs. Regardless of whether your breakup is uncontested or highly disputed, we make sure you’re familiar with the six-month residency requirement and the differences between no-fault divorce and marriage dissolution based on misconduct such as adultery or abandonment.
When a divorce proceeding is initiated, courts can award spousal maintenance to help meet a wife’s or husband’s financial needs while the case is pending. Upon dissolution of the marriage, the parties can agree on alimony terms or seek a decision from the judge. Courts examine each spouse’s circumstances and have wide latitude when determining whether spousal support should be awarded, and, if so, for how much and how long. This determination is based on financial factors, not on whether any alleged marital misconduct occurred. Our firm presents thorough, well-supported arguments on behalf of potential paying and recipient spouses. Regardless of the initial order, alimony ends upon the death of either party or when the ex-spouse who is collecting payments remarries or lives with a romantic partner.
