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. Others have been ordered by the court to pay spousal support to their ex-spouse for a number of months or years after a divorce.
There are several types of spousal support, which may be appropriate for your case:
- Temporary support
- Rehabilitative support
- Duration support
- Purpose support
Thank god I found this firm. The offices of Wayne Crowe came through for me big time. I wanna especially thank Mr. Lee Coppage he was exactly what my case needed. He was very aggressive but professional at the same time. I got full custody of my daughter today and couldn't be happier.- Steve Hernandez
This law firm is incredible! I worked with Eli Rosenbaum and he helped me every step of the way! Mr. Rosenbaum did everything in his power to make sure that I was treated fairly, he even went back to the judge and corrected him on an error that was made that would help my case immensely. I am beyond pleased with service and professionalism of this law firm. I would recommend their services to any and everyone that needs a law firm that fights for their clients to the very end and beyond.- Edward Bowie

My attorney was Michael King for a Custody issue. I was very pleased with his response time, his honesty. When the defense attorney showed up I knew I made a good decision. Michael was ready to go on the day of court while the other side didn't even recognize the defendant. Michael was personable and relatable.- Katrina Wilcoxson
I can’t express my gratitude enough to Mike for the excellence in his field! At first I wasn’t sure, he was so quiet, but don’t let that fool you! He knows what he’s doing! I was totally impressed as time moved along. I’ve definitely learned, you don’t judge a book by the cover! And Leah was outstanding working with on any questions that I had! Thank you Mike and Leah and the firm! Outstanding! If you need a good lawyer, YOU FOUND THEM HERE!- Jim

I’ve worked with this firm for over 2 years. Amazing service and staff!!- Aladin K.
I am thrilled to be able to leave a rave review of my attorney Lee Coppage. Not only was he sharply dressed and his appearance spoke business but his expertise and manner in which he takes over a courtroom was amazing. I was always satisfied to know that he would definitely get my point across and my voice would be heard through him (loud and clear) every single court appearance. He helped guide me through the worse time of my adult life. I was emotionally flustered and extremely concerned about my children and their wellbeing. Lee was supportive, knowledgeable and extremely patient with me. Several times I had emotional breakdowns and the staff in Mr. Crowe's office was very respectful and tolerated everything. It was a long year for me but I am proud to say that I made the best decision by hiring the office of Wayne Crowe Jr and blessed by having Lee represent me in court during this custody battle. I am extremely satisfied with the service provided to me.- Janet Caraballo
