Spousal support: What you need to know

While spousal support isn't an aspect that every person going through a divorce will be dealing with, for those who do it's important to understand what your rights are. Getting the Louisiana family courts to award spousal support can be an uphill battle, but having knowledgeable legal representation can help.

In Louisiana, spousal support and alimony are usually only awarded on a temporary basis, so it's especially important to do everything you can to get a fair settlement. At our firm, we understand how important it is to have adequate financial support while you get back on your feet after a divorce and adjust to your new normal. We put our resources and experience with many different spousal support cases to work for you to help you present your best case.

It's also important to consider the other factors in your divorce and how they may affect your spousal support and what you need. For example, because couples with children must live apart for at least a year before divorcing, your financial needs during this time may impact the amount of spousal support you want to seek from the courts.

From the initial consultation and discussion of your goals to analyzing the marital financial records and working on your behalf in the courtroom, we can help you with all spousal support or alimony matters. If you have questions about the divorce process or under what circumstances you may qualify for and be able to get spousal support payments, getting answers and information is an important step before moving forward.
