We Can Help You Make Or Challenge A Request
One issue that may arise throughout the course of a divorce is spousal support. Sometimes referred to as alimony, spousal support is a payment made to one spouse by the other in order to maintain the lifestyle to which he or she had grown accustomed to during the marriage. Our lawyers at Goble & Yow, PLLC have extensive experience handling spousal support cases as part of a divorce.
It is possible for an alimony agreement to be reached out of court when attempting to cooperatively settle the terms of a divorce. However, our attorneys are experienced litigators who can argue your case in court if necessary. Spousal support is not awarded in all cases, but may be sought in any divorce proceeding.
Factors That Contribute To Spousal Support Orders In Tennessee
There are a number of factors that are considered by the court when making a determination for alimony, such as:
- Length of the marriage
- Age of the parties
- Income and/or income earning potential of the parties
- Monetary contribution to the marriage by each of the parties
- Any prenuptial agreements
- If the marriage ended in a separation agreement rather than a divorce
In addition to handling the initial alimony case, whether you are seeking alimony payments or attempting to prevent spousal support from being awarded, our attorneys can also handle modifications of any existing orders.
