Divorce compensation: What is alimony support?
Alimony is a type of spousal support that is paid to a former spouse after a divorce. It can be used to help the receiving spouse maintain their standard of living during and after the divorce. The court may require alimony payments if one spouse is unable to support themselves financially after the divorce.
The family lawyers at the Morris Law Group are highly skilled and dedicated to helping their clients achieve their goals. Our goal is to be dependable, ethical, and committed to our clients. Our office can help supply a better life for your children and you through child custody or alimony hearing.
How is alimony calculated?
Alimony is typically calculated based on various factors, including the incomes of each spouse, the length of the marriage, and the needs of the receiving spouse. For example, an alimony award is likely if your marriage lasted over five years. If your marriage is less than four or five years, you will have difficulty obtaining alimony. The court will also consider whether one spouse contributed to the other’s education or career opportunities.
Alimony: Factors to be Considered
The following factors must be considered before we petition for alimony or challenge an alimony order.
- Potential earnings and income of each party
- The duration of the marriage
- The contributions made to the marriage (monetary and non-monetary)
- The length of time away from work
- A fair distribution
- Affordability and actual need
- Living standards during the marriage
- The burden of taxes for both spouses
- The age and health of both spouses
- Childcare responsibilities as a parent
What are some common alimony payments?
Alimony payments can take many different forms, depending on the circumstances of the divorce. They may be in the form of cash payments, payments for housing or rent, bills, or payment of other expenses.
If you are not receiving alimony, we will aggressively pursue your payment through contempt actions, bank account levies, and garnishment.
