Skilled Advocates for Favorable Spousal Support Outcomes

If you are pursuing a divorce, you may worry about how you will manage financially. You may wonder how you will get by without combined income — or you may believe you are being asked to support your ex-spouse with a greater level of maintenance than he or she needs.

Regardless of your situation, you can rely on the experienced attorneys at Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., if you have questions or concerns about spousal maintenance. Our Fairfax spousal support attorneys are respected in Northern Virginia for our work on behalf of clients with family law needs.

Assistance With Complex Maintenance Disputes

Determining whether and what amount of spousal support and maintenance you may pay or receive, as well as how long you can expect spousal support payments to continue, depends on many complex factors. Decisions about spousal support and maintenance may involve difficult issues such as:

  • An individual's current earning capacity
  • An individual's opportunity for education or job training to boost earning capacity
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The physical and mental conditions of the parties

Further, the courts have substantial latitude in determining how long spousal support payments will be required.

Experienced Springfield Alimony Attorneys

Because courts have such discretion in decisions regarding spousal support payments, hiring an experienced, qualified attorney is critical if you are involved in a dispute regarding spousal support. Our lawyers are committed to supporting our clients from day one and will provide you with clear explanations of the laws surrounding spousal support and your options for moving forward. We are experienced in resolving difficult disputes through negotiation and mediation, and yet we are well equipped for litigation.

We help clients appeal from or contest temporary (pendente lite) spousal maintenance awards as well as awards that extend years into the future. We can help uncover hidden assets and income that may increase a child support or spousal support award.
