Spousal Support

Spousal support, also called alimony or spousal maintenance, may be awarded to a spouse in a divorce under certain conditions, including the length of the marriage, the difference in earning power, and the ability to pay. Courts, however, are not required to award spousal support.

How to Request Spousal Support

If you need spousal support it is in your best interest to consult with a Bartow family law attorney experienced in obtaining spousal support for clients. The attorney can prepare your arguments, present your evidence to the court, rebut the opposition’s arguments, and prepare the necessary documents for the court.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
