Spousal support (also referred to as “alimony”), is used in several ways—from permanent financial assistances to a temporary solution while a spouse gets back on his or her feet. The Court can order spousal support, or the parties can agree to it as part of a divorce settlement.
Unlike the process for determining child support, the Court has significant discretion in deciding whether spousal support is appropriate. It takes a skilled negotiator and advocate to help you get the result you want in this unique area of family law—and J.E.A. Family Law has the creativity and experience you need to put your best foot forward in these situations.
