When one spouse earns significantly less than the other or chooses to concentrate on taking care household concerns, a divorce can trigger serious financial hardship. In these situations, alimony payments can be awarded so that a wife or husband can rehabilitate their ability to earn an income that meets their financial needs. Other times, a disability or family responsibility might prevent a spouse from working outside the home. Our accomplished lawyers advise clients who are seeking spousal support or those being asked to provide it so that they understand how a court might rule on an alimony dispute. In either case, we will protect their interests.
