3 Things You Must Know About Spousal Support

To get you started, here are a few things you have to know about spousal support:

  • The interim alimony amount will be higher than the final settlement.
  • Both men and women may have a right to support; for instance, a high-earning wife may be ordered to pay support to a husband who left his career to become a stay-at-home father. In fact, in recent years, experts have noted a dramatic increase in the number of women ordered to pay spousal support and support for children.
  • The alimony will be subject to modification until the final judgment. Be smart about your money.

There are a lot of important questions to ask about alimony. How long will it last? How does it get paid? How can it be modified? We use our experience to help you seek out the answers and fight for your rights.
