Fighting For Your Rights To Spousal Support

Disagreements over money will almost always complicate a divorce. A battle over spousal support can put the most cooperative couple at odds. The attorneys at Carolann M. Aschoff, P.C., recognize this and work to build your case based on the facts. We will aggressively fight to protect your rights. Both settlement and litigation will be explored to determine the best resolution.

Your Right To The Lifestyle You Enjoyed While Married

There are many factors that affect an award of alimony. When a divorcing husband and wife make the same amount of income, spousal support is generally not a factor. However, when there is a disparity in salaries, one spouse runs the risk of serious financial problems. If alimony is applicable, we work to see that the lesser-paid spouse enjoys the lifestyle he or she had while married. However, when representing the higher-paid spouse, we will defend our client, seeking a reasonable amount of support to be paid so that our client can also live a lifestyle that is comparable to what they enjoyed during the marriage.

Working With Experts To Secure Spousal Support

Unlike child support, spousal support does not have strict calculations. If required, we partner with accountants to review the nuances contained in budgets and tax returns. We seek to answer the all-important question of how much money our clients need to live on. No expense is too small to calculate into a spousal support agreement; all sources of income must be considered as well.

While we strive to settle disputes, we will diligently represent you in court if necessary to protect your interests.
