Helping You Get Monetary Support When You Need It
Divorce brings with it a lot of uncertainty, including leaving you wondering how you’re going to pay all the bills. This stress is even more compounded if you haven’t worked in a while or you’re in school working toward getting a better job.
Even though you and your spouse are splitting up, you may qualify for alimony to help ease the financial burden during your life transition.
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is money that one spouse pays to the other during or after a divorce. You can receive alimony only during divorce proceedings, for a certain period of time after your separation, or until you reach some milestone, such as graduation from an educational program.
Whether or not you qualify for alimony, and how much you should receive, depends on several factors, including:
- How long you were married
- Your ability to be wholly or partially self-supported
- Both spouses’ ages and physical and emotional conditions
- The time necessary for you to receive education or training to secure suitable employment
- Each spouse’s financial resources
