Alimony & Spousal Support Lawyer

Alimony (spousal support) is one of the most ambiguous and complicated issues that must be tackled during the divorce process. It is often difficult to anticipate in advance whether you or your spouse will be entitled to alimony and even more challenging to anticipate the amount.

Alimony in Connecticut is not granted in every divorce case. It is based on an analysis of numerous factors such as:

  • assets that each party brought into the marriage
  • individual assets that each party is taking out of the marriage
  • duration of the marriage
  • each party’s education and earning potential
  • health of each party
  • the need of each party
  • the ability of either party to pay
  • current income of each party
  • historical earnings of each party
  • each party’s standard of living and lifestyle during the marriage

If an alimony award can be settled through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution, we will work hard to be sure that an efficient, cost-effective agreement is created. However, if a settlement with your spouse is not feasible, we will move forward with an aggressive litigation strategy.
