With our dedicated legal counsel, we can help you work together with your spouse towards an amicable and jointly acceptable solution.

What is Alimony?

Alimony, also known as spousal support, is monetary payment for the support and maintenance of a former spouse. This can either be one lump sum or a continuous series of payments. This is usually paid by the "supporting" spouse to the "dependent spouse," or from the person with higher income to the other. The terms of this can be determined either out of court or through court involvement.

If a court decision is required, alimony will be determined according to:

  • The presence of marital misconduct
  • Incomes of the spouses
  • Ages of the spouses
  • Duration of the marriage
  • The needs of each spouse

Alimony can be one of the most contentious topics for divorcing couples to agree upon. With our firm's legal knowledge, we can simplify this process and help you negotiate with your spouse towards a mutually agreeable arrangement.
