Experienced Attorneys For Spousal Support Matters

After a divorce, one household becomes two, and there is often significant financial strain for one or both divorced spouses. In some cases, it is appropriate for one spouse to provide the other spousal support payments, also known as alimony or spousal maintenance.

If you are seeking spousal support or your ex-spouse is seeking it from you, it is important to consult with an experienced divorce attorney. At Chvatal Law, our lawyers have significant experience handling spousal support matters and can provide you with the guidance and advocacy you need.

Spousal Support Factors

Courts consider many factors in establishing spousal support orders, including:

  • The earning capacity of both parties
  • The age and health of both parties
  • The length of the marriage
  • The lifestyle enjoyed during the marriage
  • The educational and job training needs of the receiving spouse

Judges have broad discretion in deciding on spousal support cases, so it is important to work with an attorney who knows the law and how judges are likely to rule. Our attorneys have handled many of these cases for both those seeking spousal support and those who are being asked to pay. Whatever side of the issue you are on, we are prepared to protect your financial interests.
