Find out if you are eligible for alimony after divorce

On Behalf of | Oct 15, 2015 | Alimony

Typically, finances are one of the main concerns during divorce proceedings in Ohio. It is important to be financially stable after the end of the marriage, and for that reason, it may be necessary to seek spousal support, also known as alimony. As many Ohio readers know, the financial aspects of a divorce are some of the most difficult to negotiate.

In many cases, couples are able to negotiate and agree upon the terms of a financial agreement, including provisions for spousal support. While the terms are subject to approval of a judge, lawyers can help couples discuss and achieve a fair agreement. If you believe that you are entitled to support after a divorce, having an experienced lawyer is the first step toward ensuring that you secure the amount you deserve.

Agreements are not always made amicably. If you suspect that your spouse is hiding assets or committing any type of financial fraud, it can have a direct impact on your ability to get a fair settlement. An experienced lawyer can use various analytics tools and other investigative measures to uncover hidden assets and ensure that they are distributed fairly.

Alimony is determined by several factors, including the earning capacity of both spouses and the length of the marriage. It is vital to approach divorce negotiations appropriately as any agreement will have a direct impact on your life for the years to come. With the help of an Ohio lawyer, you can be certain that your best interests are protected during this critical time.
