Maintenance and Spousal Support

Maintenance, formerly called alimony, is a payment from one spouse to support the other who is incapable of supporting him or herself in their former marital lifestyle once the marriage ends.  The award of maintenance is a two-step process: (1) determination of whether a party is entitled to maintenance; and if the party is so entitled, (2) determination of the amount and duration of the award.  Our attorneys excel at developing a lifestyle analysis to evaluate the optimum spousal support needed.
