There was a time when spousal maintenance support, or alimony, was a common occurrence in a divorce settlement. But it has become less popular in recent years, with only one in every six divorcing couples even considering it as an option. However in cases where it is relevant, spousal maintenance plays a very crucial role in the divorce settlement. Maintenance can be a very sensitive topic between divorcing couples, and it is important to have the services of an attorney with valuable insight in family law if you or your spouse plans to pursue it.
The Carson Law Firm understands that in some situations, maintenance is absolutely relevant and necessary, and in others it isn’t. We also understand the complexity of every factor at play. We have the experience to determine how the income of both parties, ability to earn a living, age, health, work history, and the amount of child support being paid will all have an impact on the court’s decision regarding spousal support. We work with clients to understand all of the issues at play in the divorce before determining what, if any, role that maintenance should play in the divorce settlement.
