Everything feels stressful when you're going through a divorce-you might need to move out of your home, relocate your children or work out a parenting plan with your former spouse. You'll likely have to go through all of your finances and assets. When you've shared your life with another person, you have a lot to untangle when you separate.
One thing you shouldn't have to worry about is getting the financial support you need when the divorce is final. If you're headed to court to negotiate alimony payments, turn to the Law Office of Robert Johnson Moore for support. Our family law attorney can speak up for you and make sure the arrangement is fair.
Alimony, sometimes called spousal support, is a court-ordered provision for a spouse after a divorce. Regular payments are required when one spouse has financial needs that the other spouse can cover.
A judge will consider several factors when determining if alimony is necessary, such as the duration of the marriage, the age of the people involved and each person's income. For example, if you make significantly less money than your spouse and can't pay your rent, your spouse may be ordered to pay you a set amount each month.
