Alimony/Spousal Maintenance

After divorce or dissolution, one spouse may be ordered by the court to make payment to the other for their support and maintenance. This is known as alimony or spousal maintenance, and is generally awarded when one party (the dependent spouse) lacks funds to pay their monthly expenses and the other (the supporting spouse) is able to help pay those expenses.

The experienced family law attorneys of Bolt Hoffer Boyd understand the complexities surrounding spousal support, and can help you work through what can be a difficult, emotional process. We’ll look at detailed monthly budgets, monthly earnings, each parties’ work experience and education, and answer any questions you might have.

While spousal support or alimony is not awarded in every case, we’ll help you review the options and determine if you’ll be entitled to receive or be obligated to pay on a short-term or long-term basis.
