Seasoned litigator and compassionate parent. I combine traditional litigation style with collaborative law mediation emphasis to create a winning combination for clients. This saves clients time, money and aggravation and is more likely to lead to a positive result in terms of time and money.
When an ex-spouse makes payments to a former spouse after the divorce, the payments are called alimony. Alimony payments (also called spousal support) are intended to preserve the lifestyle the former spouse enjoyed before the divorce. Unlike child support, which is a required payment to fund a child's necessities, no one is guaranteed alimony. If a couple can't agree, a judge decides whether to award alimony. A divorce lawyer who specializes in alimony knows what information you need to calculate alimony, and can also help if you feel your ex-spouse is asking for too much alimony.
