Alimony & Spousal Support

Alimony & spousal support is financial support provided by one party to the other for his or her maintenance.  Unlike with child support, a judge has wide discretion when addressing the issue of alimony.   A number of factors come into play including the length of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage, physical and emotional health of both spouses, financial resources, financial contributions during the marriage, financial need and more.  Darbouze Law Group lawyers have extensive experience in navigating the sometimes confusing issues of alimony and spousal support and will represent your interests with every tool we have

Types of Alimony

Temporary alimony: This particular kind of spousal support is also known as alimony pendente lite and is ordered when you and your spouse are separated prior to a divorce being completed.

Rehabilitative alimony: When spousal support is provided to a lesser-earning spouse so that he or she may obtain work and become self-sufficient. Reimbursement alimony: This version of alimony is given for expenses incurred by a spouse during the marriage and to pay back the spouse for time, money, or effort put into the other spouse’s financial resources.

Permanent alimony: This kind of support is provided to the lesser-earning spouse until the death of the payor, the death of the recipient, or the remarriage of the recipient. Lump sum alimony: While not available in all states, several states permit a spouse to pay all the alimony due in a single lump sum as long as it equals the total amount of the required future monthly payments.
