Are You Paying Too Much Alimony? Are You Receiving Enough Child Support?
Factors considered by Connecticut family law courts in determining alimony levels include:
- Length of the marriage
- Age and health of each spouse
- Profession and income of each spouse
- Degree of marital misconduct by a spouse
- Employability of the unemployed spouse
- Combined and individual assets of the spouses, and sources of those assets
- Methods for division of marital assets
- Ability of the primary custodian to work outside the home
Child support, meanwhile, is decided by state-mandated, income-based guidelines. We make you aware of the obligations of both payer and recipient. If child support requirements are ignored or haphazardly attended to, we can go to court for a contempt or enforcement action that attempts to restore the child support in short order.
In these uncertain economic times, you want to know you will be able to support your child financially. Conversely, you deserve to avoid unfair levels of child support or alimony (also referred to as spousal maintenance).
Don’t leave anything to chance. We can help you strive for consistent, and consistently met, support obligations that promote post-divorce family harmony.
