Spousal Support

We Will Represent You in All Facets of Spousal Support

Spousal Support

Whether your marriage lasted 2 years or 52 years, facing divorce is frightening. Adding to that stress is the unknown of going from a dual income household to a single income. As you are going through your divorce, you need a legal team you can rely on to alleviate anxiety as it relates to spousal support. Our dedicated team of spousal support attorneys provide compassionate legal service during your time of need.

In Michigan there are three different forms of alimony:

  • Alimony in gross
    property division payable through a lump-sum or fixed periodic payments. This type of spousal support is not able to be modified.
  • Permanent
    designed to provide financial assistance to a dependent spouse permanently. This type of alimony is very typical, especially if the marriage was long term.
  • Rehabilitative
    designed to help a spouse get back on their feet and provide for his/her economic needs when he/she is unable to do so. This type of support can help a spouse obtain full-time employment and self-sufficiency, to obtain a degree, and adjust to a lifestyle based on the new economic realities following divorce.

Our attorneys will spend time to understand your specific situation and determine the alimony that is best for you. These are a few of the more common contributing factors:

  • Standard of living established during the marriage
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Financial resources
  • Earning capability
  • Contributions to the marriage
  • Children
  • Sources of income

We will review all options with you prior to making any decisions. Once you are awarded alimony, it can be modified if there is a justified reason (unless it is alimony in gross), such as a substantial change in circumstance or if a former spouse has gotten remarried.

Alimony can be complicated; do not try to navigate these complex waters alone. We are committed to providing you a positive experience, all while seamlessly handling the meticulous details.
