Spousal Support/Alimony

Spousal support, also known as alimony, can be a very complicated issue for couples who are separated and getting a divorce. Divorce attorney Adam S. Hyman has the experience and legal acumen to help you navigate the legal issues, whether you are the one expected to pay spousal support or expecting to receive it.
When the issue of spousal support is litigated, the court considers the following factors:

  • The ability of the party seeking spousal support to be wholly or partly self-supporting
  • The time necessary for the party seeking alimony to gain sufficient education or training to enable that party to find suitable employment
  • The standard of living that the couple established during their marriage
  • The duration of the marriage
  • The contributions, monetary and nonmonetary, of each party to the well-being of the family
  • The circumstances that contributed to the estrangement of the couple. Such as abuse or adultery
  • The age of each party
  • The physical and mental condition of each party
  • The ability of the party from whom spousal support is sought to meet that party’s needs while meeting the needs of the party seeking support
  • Any agreement between the parties such as a prenuptial agreement or separation agreement
  • The financial needs and financial resources of each party
