Dealing with Divorce

For some, divorce may feel like a liberating new beginning. For most, however, it is not so straightforward. The end of a relationship as important as a marriage brings numerous difficult emotions.

Determination of Alimony

If you are wondering if you will be required to pay your spouse alimony, the most important questions are the length of your marriage and how disparate your income levels are. The court will also consider the age and health of the parties and their ability to support themselves.

Modification of Child Support

Child support can be modified based upon a change in circumstances. Child support is always calculated using the parties’ income and it also takes into account day care expenses and insurance premiums. The support can also be affected by the number of overnight visits each parent has with the children.
