Am I Entitled to Spousal Support?
Typically, when you go through a contested divorce, decisions relating to spousal support are left in the hands of the judge. They decide if you or your spouse are entitled to spousal support, how much will be paid, and the length of time it will be paid. We can help build a strong case to give you the best chance of receiving spousal support.
There is a wide range of factors that the court may consider when making a decision about spousal support, including:
- Tax consequences
- Income of each party
- Health/age of each party
- Quality of life in the marriage
- The ability of each party to support themselves
- The length of the marriage
Understanding the Types of Spousal Support
Throughout the years we have been in practice, we have seen virtually every type of divorce case. Many of our clients have been supported financially for years, only to go through a divorce and have to get back on their feet.

There are several types of spousal support, which may be appropriate for your case:
- Temporary support
- Rehabilitative support
