What is Alimony?

For many reasons, divorce is one of the most challenging events that you’ll go through in your life.  Trying to unravel the life you knew and build a new one can be daunting.   Having an experienced divorce lawyer that understands what you are going through can be comforting.  It would help if you had an attorney to represent your interests and help you get what you deserve.

Some people confuse alimony and child support, but they are two different types of financial support decided during a divorce.  Alimony was created to protect a supported spouse in a divorce or separation.  Often, the spouse who stays home has sacrificed his or her career or education to care for the family.  In these cases, a divorce can leave that spouse unprepared financially to begin his or her new reality during separation and post-divorce.

The team at Evans & Turnblad wants to help you secure the alimony you may need to support yourself and provide for your children. If you are the spouse paying alimony, we want to ensure you are not overpaying your spouse, leaving you in a financial bind. Having the proper legal representation with experience in these matters will help you get through your case.

Modifying Alimony

Once alimony has been decided, it is possible in some situations to modify the alimony award.  An attorney experienced in alimony modification is essential to give your modification or termination request a chance.
