One of the most commonly cited concerns during divorce involves financial matters. From child support to alimony, people are worried about protecting their financial interests and their ability to maintain continuity of lifestyle after their divorce is final. For some spouses, alimony is a critical component to their post-divorce stability and financial well-being.
Alimony is not granted in every divorce, and it is important to clearly establish one’s rightful claim to this type of financial support. If a person did not work during his or her marriage or made less money than the other spouse, there may be valid grounds for spousal support. Spousal support is taxable income, but our Ohio lawyers calculate the potential tax consequences associated with alimony to ensure that our clients are informed of all options.
Determining spousal support in Ohio is based on a number of factors. These include the length of the marriage, the income of both spouses, future career opportunities, mental statuses of both spouses, assets and liabilities and age at the time of divorce. On behalf of our clients, we fight for a fair outcome to alimony disputes, advocating for a strong and stable post-divorce future.
