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.
Child Support relates to the financial impact upon children when parents get divorced or otherwise end their romantic relationship. Arizona courts use many factors to determine what amount of child support will be awarded, including:
- Income of the Parents
- Ages of the Children
- Cost of Child Care and Education
- Cost of Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance
- Parenting Time
- Special Needs of the Children
An experienced attorney can help you understand each of these factors and help ensure that your child’s financial needs are met moving forward. We can also handle your child support modification when the factors listed above have changed and child support needs to be increased or decreased.

“Very Professional & Responsible“
“I hired Regina Pangerl after interviewing several lawyers for my divorce case. I had several needs to be met and Regina was able to meet those needs. Her personal background of having a special needs child lended her expertise to my highly specialized case of having both medical needs lasting past age 18 of both my children and an adult disabled son. She is extremely responsive and takes time to make certain you have no questions.” – Sara S.
