Virginia Beach Spousal Support Attorney
Spousal Support Done Right in Norfolk
Spousal Support is often the most disputed issue in family law. Either as part of a divorce, or as a stand-alone issue, spousal support is both desperately needed and to be absolutely avoided all at the same time.
It is also one of the hardest things for attorneys to predict. Results tend to be all over the map. There are advisory guidelines and worksheets, but they are not binding on the decision maker. The legal test is the “financial needs of the recipient” balanced against the providers “ability to pay”. That’s the only guidance we get.
Experience helps us give you advice about spousal support. A textbook candidate is a long-term marriage of 10 years or more and a wide disparity in income. But there are no guarantees that spousal support will be awarded.
Even if a person is a great candidate for spousal support, the next decision is for how long? Is this permanent spousal support or only temporary rehabilitative spousal support that will expire after a certain amount of months?
We can help you figure out:
- The financial needs of the recipient
- The ability to pay of the provider
- Whether someone is a good candidate for spousal support
- What the amount of spousal support would be
- The length of spousal support
Let us help you navigate the complicated world of spousal support. Let’s get it right and make it binding and legal.
