Courts have immense discretion when determining the amount and duration of spousal support, or whether to award spousal support at all. As a result, the quality of your legal counsel can make a significant impact on this aspect of your divorce. Consider BRODER & ORLAND LLC. With many decades of collective experience, our law firm provides representation to individuals across Connecticut.
The amount and duration of alimony are determined by considering numerous statutory factors, including:
- Length of the marriage
- Causes for the dissolution
- Age of the parties
- Health of the parties
- Station of the parties
- Occupation of the parties
- Amount and sources of income
- Vocation skills and employability of the parties
- Estates of the parties
- Liabilities and needs of each of the parties
- Desirability of custodial parent securing employment
Our Westport spousal support attorneys work tenaciously to arrive at ideal results for clients seeking alimony as well as clients who may be responsible for paying alimony. We appreciate that many income earners are understandably protective about the fruits of their labor. Most seek a fair resolution but require the skillful representation we offer in preserving income, especially in higher tax brackets.
We have a complete understanding of the potential tax consequences associated with alimony and property distribution, and will advise our clients of the various advantages and disadvantages of each potential course of action. Further, our lawyers provide skilled advocacy and counsel on the issue of temporary alimony (alimony pendente lite) paid or received while the couple is divorcing.
