Spousal Support is Important Aspect of Divorce Proceedings

A lot of aspects should be considered when deciding to separate if you have children or other shared assets. An accomplished divorce attorney can make the difference between a balanced or unbalanced divorce settlement by ensuring the assets you share are equally divided. Some areas that are important in a divorce or separation proceeding are:

  • Child support
  • Alimony requirements
  • Custody arrangements
  • Property and asset division
  • Visitation rights
  • Temporary protection order
  • Domestic abuse
  • Relocation law
  • Pay garnishment
  • Spousal support law

Permanent Spousal Support vs. Temporary Spousal Support

There are two different types of spousal support that you can receive.

  1. Temporary Spousal Support – One spouse extends the spousal support for a limited and defined period.
  2. Permanent Spousal Support – One spouse is liable to pay spousal support to the other spouse for the rest of their life. When the spouse receiving support remarries, spousal support payments will cease.
