Alimony and Spousal Support: Understand Your Rights

Whether you are the primary wage earner or dependent spouse, your divorce may involve a dispute over alimony or spousal support. Connecticut law provides that one party may have a duty to support the other to maintain a certain standard of living after a divorce. I provide expert advocacy to protect my clients’ rights and financial interests after divorce.

Call me today at 860-589-4121 to schedule a consultation or contact me by e-mail if you have a question about your case. I offer over 30 years of experience as a divorce and family law attorney.

Collecting alimony after a divorce

If you were a dependent spouse during the marriage, I will aggressively assert your rights and protect your financial interests by pursuing alimony or spousal support. I thoroughly assess the income of your spouse to help you receive the support that you deserve. I have experience with such issues as manipulation of earnings, under-employment and spousal support for child-rearing parents.

Alimony or spousal support will be based on:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The income of both parties
  • The earning capacity of both parties
  • Significant health or disability issues
  • Property division
  • The cause of divorce or dissolution

Defending against unfair alimony obligations

While child support obligations are based on a formula, alimony determinations are discretionary. I represent clients defending against unmanageable support obligations, and I will aggressively pursue a determination of support that is reasonably based on all relevant facts. Starting with your initial consultation, I explain your rights and provide an honest assessment of the likely outcome of your case.

Call for a consultation at 860-589-4121 or contact me by e-mail. I am an experienced Bristol, Connecticut, lawyer committed to protecting your rights, your security and your family.
