Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
Spousal Maintenance is designed to provide monthly financial assistance to enable a former spouse to get back on their feet after a divorce or legal separation. An award of indefinite, lifetime spousal maintenance can be awarded after a lengthy marriage. Spousal maintenance is decided on a case by case basis. If you’re concerned about the financial impacts of life after separation from a spouse, we can help. We’ll walk you through the process and help you understand the issues a judge might consider when determining spousal maintenance awards. If financial circumstances change for you or your former spouse (such as wages or disability), we can help you modify the original spousal maintenance order in your case.
