Sometimes, the best way to achieve fair alimony results is to come to an agreement between spouses. Our spousal support attorney Karen Schoenau are experienced negotiators who often achieve top-quality results through divorce mediation. However, if you and your spouse are unable to reach agreement independently, the court may award alimony based on a series of factors:
- Does one spouse lack sufficient property to provide for his or her reasonable needs?
- Is one spouse unable to be self-sufficient or is the caretaker of a child preventing the spouse from seeking adequate employment?
- Did one spouse contribute to the educational opportunities of the other spouse?
- If the marriage lasted a long time, is one spouse of an age that prevents him or her from employment?
Alimony may be temporary or permanent, depending on your specific situation. At the Law Firm of Karen Schoenau, we will evaluate your case and make an assessment according to your best interest.Talk to a Lawyer About Your Spousal Maintenance Concerns
