The end of a marriage is a confusing time. Emotions run high, financial entanglements are ripped apart, and people have to face an uncertain future. Competent counsel will alleviate these concerns by walking you through the maze of laws and procedures for them. At Mason, Mason, and Smith Attorneys at Law, we have the proven track record to ensure a favorable outcome for you is aggressively pursued.
Often, parties are able to resolve a divorce through a “separation agreement.” This document allows the parties to agree, out of court, how assets and debts will be divided, and even how the parties will calculate child support, child custody and alimony.
Accurate Alimony Determination
Alimony is an amount paid by a supporting spouse to a dependent spouse upon the termination of the marriage. Certain factors, such as extramarital affairs by either party, can impact an alimony determination. The duration and amount of alimony is not a black and white calculation but rather is determined after analyzing several factors.
These factors can include:
- The length of the marriage
- The parties’ incomes
- The age and mental condition of the spouses
- Property acquired during the marriage
- Any special needs of either spouse
