Whether you are seeking alimony or think you might have to pay it, spousal support is a significant part of your post-divorce budget. You deserve lawyers who take your case as seriously as you do. Located in Virginia Beach and serving Norfolk, Chesapeake and the Hampton Roads area, the W. Ware Morrison Law Group stands up for you in your alimony case.
Alimony can be ordered as a regular payment or a lump-sum amount paid by one spouse to the other. When determining the amount of alimony, courts consider:
The financial obligations and resources of the spouses
The standard of living during the marriage
The length of the marriage
The ages and health of the spouses and how that affects their ability to work
Special circumstances of the family
The contributions each spouse made to the family
The property each owns
How marital property is divided in the divorce
The earning ability of each spouse including skills, education and training
The ability of the spouses to get the education or training needed to increase employment opportunities
Whether one of the spouses stayed home for the family
If the spouses enabled each other to obtain an education or a career by making sacrifices
The tax consequences to each
Even after alimony has been established, your circumstances may change, and you may need to talk with your attorney about modifying alimony payments. If you are seeking alimony or a modification in Hampton Roads, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News or Virginia Beach, we can help you.
Alimony is generally paid by the spouse with greater financial resources. Alimony cannot be ordered if the spouse who would receive it committed adultery. Alimony payments automatically end:
Upon the death of either spouse
Remarriage of the spouse receiving alimony
At the time period stated in the alimony order
Temporary alimony can be paid while you are in the process of getting divorced. Alimony often is ordered to be rehabilitative — to allow one spouse to get the training or education needed to become financially self-supporting. Lifetime alimony may be ordered when the spouses are elderly or disabled. If you need divorce lawyers who are able to negotiate a favorable alimony settlement, turn to the W. Ware Morrison Law Group.
