SALT LAKE CITY ALIMONY AND SPOUSAL SUPPORT

Protecting Your Economic Rights During Divorce and Separation

There is no denying that divorce is an emotionally difficult time. It can be very economically trying as well. Dependent spouses often feel trapped in bad marriages, simply because they feel they cannot afford to live on their own. However, they may be able to obtain a temporary or permanent award of spousal support to assist them in covering their monthly expenses. Salt Lake City spousal support lawyers can help spouses who are separated but not divorced obtain the financial support to which they are entitled. And through alimony payments, a knowledgeable and aggressive family law attorney from Intermountain Legal can help you secure economic peace of mind during and after divorce proceedings.

How Alimony and Spousal Support Work

Spousal support, also known as alimony, consists of court-ordered payments from one spouse to the other before, during and after a divorce. Unlike child support, which is based largely on statutory guidelines, alimony is a more subjective determination. As such, alimony lawyers in Salt Lake City are often able to settle this issue out of court. If litigation becomes necessary, the court considers numerous factors, primarily the requesting party’s need for financial support and the payor party’s ability to provide that support.  The court may also consider the following factors:

  • Financial condition
  • Earning capacity
  • Work history
  • Length of the marriage
  • Custody of minor children
  • Contributions to the marriage
  • Contributions to a marital business

Alimony is frequently one of the more contentious issues a Salt Lake City divorce lawyer must confront. And because it is so subjective and takes so many factors into consideration, it is beneficial to have a Salt Lake City alimony attorney argue on your behalf.
