Going through a divorce brings about many changes, particularly for those who have been financially dependent upon their spouse.
In cases of divorce where one spouse has been substantially reliant upon the other during a majority of the marriage for their ordinary daily support, they may be able to file a claim for spousal maintenance, which is typically referred to as alimony.
At the Nilsson Legal Group, we assist divorcing spouses in securing fair spousal maintenance payments if warranted.
If your spouse earns a higher income than you do, you may be entitled to a monthly stipend over and above your equitable distribution.
Our experienced attorneys also represent the supporting spouse, as spousal maintenance claims may need to be vigorously defended due to long term consequence and tax implications.
