  • Big Divorce Victory -- Alimony for Male Spouse

    Practice Area:
    Family
    Date:
    Jan 26, 2011
    Outcome:
    Major victory on property division and maintenance
    Description:
    In January 2011, I tried a divorce case with approximately $700,000.00 in marital assets. My client was an unemployed computer programmer in his late 50's. Wife was a college chemistry professor in her 40's working at the University. Issues were property valuation and maintenance. One of the big property issues was the house and we were able to win a valuation of $20,000.00 less than the other side. This was key because my client claimed the house. The big victory was in maintenance, however. My client was entitled to some maintenance for all he had done through the marriage contributing to the family's wealth and overall economic well being. The other side was resistant-- offering very little for a very limited term. We won a substantial sum that set my client up through retirement. We were both very happy.
