Westport Alimony Attorneys
Greenwich Spousal Support Lawyers
Understanding where your divorce will put you financially is an important part of planning for your life after your divorce. What will be your obligations? What can you expect to receive?
The answers to these questions can be decided in a cooperative effort by you and your spouse - or you can leave it up to the court to decide. At the law office of Freshman & McGlynn, LLC in Westport, Connecticut, our alimony lawyers have nearly 70 years of experience handling a variety of family law and divorce issues. We work closely with financial planners and other professionals in order to help ensure your stability after a divorce.
Sometimes referred to as spousal support or spousal maintenance, alimony can come in two forms: temporary and permanent. Temporary alimony is paid throughout the divorce process and terminates upon finalization of the divorce. Permanent alimony may last for your lifetime or for a certain period of time and will usually cease upon your remarriage. Alimony may also be adjusted or modified when certain substantial changes in circumstances occur.
In Connecticut alimony calculations are not set by formula. Judges can and do arrive at different amounts as they see fit. For this reason and others, it may be in your best interest not to leave these decisions up to the court; instead, it may be to your benefit to attempt to arrive at a settlement by means of mediation or collaborative law. However, when necessary, we utilize our extensive litigation skills to aggressively advocate for our clients in court.
Our Connecticut alimony attorneys have more than 40 years of combined experience resolving alimony disputes and other family law matters. We have the necessary legal knowledge and understanding of complex financial relationships and transactions to effectively protect our clients' interests.
