Grand Rapids Spousal Support Attorney
It is important to know that spousal support (commonly known as alimony) is not always awarded in a divorce. Typically, the length of the marriage must be at least 10 years, with 10 to 20 years being the general time frame for a long-term marriage. However, there are other different determinants that the court will look at, including:
- Length of the marriage
- Education of both parties
- Child support payments
- Employment history of both parties
- Allegations of faults/adultery
- Domestic abuse
- Property settlements
Advocating for Men and Women
We frequently represent both men and women in divorces. For women who stay at home with children or have a limited income, we strive to get the maximum amount in spousal support payments. For men who are the main source of income, we critically evaluate the situation to determine if the spouse really is in need of alimony. No matter what your situation is, we have likely seen one that is similar and know how to handle your particular needs.
