Alimony becomes an issue in divorce when one spouse claims he or she lacks adequate resources to maintain a reasonable quality of life after the divorce. A variety of factors will be examined in any alimony case to determine whether it is appropriate, including:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s earning potential
- Education level of each spouse
- The couple’s standard of living
- Reason for the divorce
We strive to help our clients reach an amicable agreement on an alimony arrangement. However, if mediation and collaborative law are not effective or appropriate in a case, we are fully prepared to be fierce advocates for our clients at trial.
