Determining Spousal Maintenance And Alimony

In divorces, alimony, or support, can be determined by a mutual agreement. However, in many cases, that decision is left up to the judge, who can have a significant impact on both the amount and duration of support. In addition, the courts can choose not to award alimony in the first place. In these situations, the counsel of an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer can have significant impact on all aspects of the alimony decision.

Attorney Amanda L. H. Brinton has helped individuals in Wilmington and New Castle County for more than a decade with alimony and other family law issues. She has consistently advocated for clients and their rights, pushing for fair alimony terms that are in the best interests of the client.

How Is Alimony Determined?

There are several considerations that go into determining spousal maintenance. First, the spouse seeking it must prove that he or she is dependent on the other individual for that financial support. In addition, the individual seeking support must prove that he or she is unable to provide for the reasonable needs.

Then, additional factors are considered, including reasonable monthly costs and expenses and the ability to obtain appropriate employment.

Finally, considerations, including the income of both parties, as well as potential income, duration of marriage, and child support payments are evaluated. There is no simple formula. However, with over a decade of experience, we have the knowledge and background to place you in a favorable position.

At the Law Offices of Amanda L. H. Brinton LLC, we simplify these issues and work with you to determine how to best present your alimony case. We work with both receiving and payer spouses and tailor our recommendations and strategies accordingly and in light of the unique considerations of each case.
