Practice Area: Divorce and separation
Outcome: The Court entered a substantial maintenance award for a period of time extending beyond the completion of Wife's PhD program to allow her to obtain employment and a fairly disproportionate property division in favor of wife.
Description: I represented Wife, who was in her 50's and was in her PhD program after being laid off. The case went to trial. The wife was requesting maintenance and the husband argued that she was fully employable and that she should be awarded no maintenance.
