Know Whether You Are Entitled or If You May Have to Pay Spousal Support

Candace M. Williams P.C. will answer your questions and guide you through the legal process

Alimony is ultimately determined by examining once spouse’s need and the other spouse’s ability to pay. The Judge or Jury can consider numerous factors in determining whether alimony should be awarded including, but not limited to:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Causes of separation
  • Standard of living
  • Financial Resources
  • If applicable, time necessary to obtain education and training for employment
  • Contributions, including homemaking, childcare, education, and career building
  • Condition of the parties, including separate estate, earning capacity and fixed liabilities
  • Such other factors as are equitable and proper

I sit down with clients, and look at tax returns, past earning history, budgets, current expenses, future expenses separate from a spouse, and help guide you on a realistic alimony claim.    There are several forms of alimony, monthly payments or periodic, in kind or paid in the form of another expense such as health insurance, and lump sum, which is received in a large payment or short increments.  Remarriage can terminate alimony, adultery claims may affect alimony claims and other conduct.

“Candace is excellent, she is truly the best attorney I have ever used. She was the answer to a prayer for my alimony case, she knows business tax returns, she is amazing on spreadsheets, and summarizes this data to the Court. The Court really appreciated her expertise, alimony was modified, and we won attorney’s fees. Thank you Candace.” RW
