Spousal support is an important issue that is regularly raised in divorce proceedings. Also known as alimony, spousal support is the monetary support paid by one spouse to the other in order to attempt to maintain a lifestyle. This support may be temporary, such as during the course of the divorce, or permanent in nature. Determination of spousal support/alimony can be a very complicated matter. To begin with, there are a number of forms of alimony including permanent alimony, rehabilitative alimony, lump sum alimony, bridge the gap alimony, and nominal alimony. There are also tax consequences depending on the type or form of support you negotiate.

The Court must consider a number of factors in order to determine spousal support. Some of these factors include length of the marriage, each spouse’s earnings and income, their abilities and disabilities, lifestyle of the spouses during the marriage as well as their level of education.

Determination of alimony can be an extremely complicated matter. Only an experienced attorney, such as you’ll find at the Law Firm of Jeffrey Hap, can properly evaluate your case to help you determine whether or not you may entitled to support, the amount of support which may be appropriate, and which form of support may be in your best interest. Do not hesitate to make an appointment for a free consultation at the Law Firm of Jeffrey Hap at your earliest convenience.
