York Spousal Support Lawyer

Are you seeking alimony in your divorce case?

When a couple divorces, a spouse may request financial support to maintain the standard of living achieved during their marriage. Support can be awarded to either a husband or wife, depending on the circumstances of the case. When deciding to award alimony, the court will look at various factors, including:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The income and assets of each spouse
  • The future earning potential of each spouse
  • Which spouse will be the primary custodian of any minor children
  • The contributions made by each spouse during the marriage
  • The ability of the spouse seeking support to become employable

Support can be paid in a lump sum, on a monthly basis over a period of years, or for the duration of the dependent spouse's lifetime. Temporary support can also be awarded during a separation until a final settlement has been reached. If you are planning to divorce, a York divorce lawyer can discuss you particular situation and help determine if you are eligible for support and the amount of alimony you can expect.
