Making Sure You Are Not At A Disadvantage
Spousal support or alimony may be ordered for a few reasons. For example, the recipient may need the money to develop job skills in order to support himself or herself. Or, in cases such as high-asset divorce, spousal support may be needed by the recipient to maintain the standard of living during the marriage.
Judges consider many things when awarding alimony, and they may include:
- The income and earnings of each spouse
- The length of the marriage
- The couple’s standard of living while married
- The financial portfolio and investments each person brought into the marriage
- The needs of each spouse in relation to age, physical and mental health as well as financial capabilities
- The time it will take for the recipient to complete training and education to become financially self-sufficient
Alimony will be ordered only as long as it is necessary for the recipient to undergo job-training and become self-supportive. And it typically ends upon the remarriage of the recipient. Whether you will receive or pay alimony, Mr. Patti will advocate for you. He wants to make sure a fair settlement gets implemented.
