Louisville-Based Lawyers Advising On Spousal Support

Spousal support, also known as alimony, may be an essential component of your Kentucky or Indiana divorce. Whether you are considering seeking support or anticipate being asked to pay, our team of dedicated attorneys is here to guide you through the process with a full understanding of the factors and stakes involved.

Spousal support is typically awarded to individuals who have been financially dependent on their spouses during their marriages. Our attorneys will work diligently to ensure that your unique circumstances are taken into account regarding your divorce.

Overview Of Temporary, Short-Term Or Permanent Support

Spousal support can take various forms, including temporary, short-term, or permanent support. Your spousal support order may include:

  • Temporary support: provided during divorce proceedings
  • Short-term support: for a specific period post-divorce
  • Permanent support: ongoing financial assistance

In cases where one party is unable to support themselves due to factors such as age or disability, permanent support may be awarded. Our attorneys are experienced in advocating for our clients’ rights in all types of support arrangements and will stand up for your interests in all legal proceedings.

About Eligibility

Factors determining eligibility for spousal support may include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Financial resources of each party
  • Standard of living established during the marriage

Spousal support may also be awarded to ensure that both parties can maintain a similar standard of living post-divorce. Our team is committed to advocating for your rights and ensuring that the outcome of your divorce takes your unique circumstances into account.

Duration Of Support

One of the most common questions surrounding spousal support is how long it will last. The duration of support can vary widely depending on the specific factors of each case. In some instances, support may be awarded temporarily to provide financial assistance while the divorce is pending. Temporary support is typically terminated once a final divorce decree is issued.

When long-term support is warranted, the duration of support may be determined based on factors such as the length of the marriage and the earning potential of each party. Our attorneys will evaluate your case in detail and advocate in support of your interests.
