Protect Your Financial Interests In Spousal Support

Spousal support, often referred to as alimony, is often the cause of the most bitter disputes between spouses in a divorce. Whether it is over whether one spouse should be forced to pay, or the amount and duration of the financial support, it can be difficult for parties to reach a compromise.

If alimony will be an important consideration in your divorce, it is important to work with a family law attorney like me, Christopher Mast of Naples, Florida. I have helped countless clients on both sides of the spousal support issue protect their financial interests.

A Lawyer Who Fights Aggressively On Your Behalf

The courts look at alimony differently than they did years ago. Today, permanent alimony is typically awarded only in the case of a long-term marriage in which one spouse did not hold a paying job outside of the home and has no training or job skills required to find employment after the divorce.

Temporary alimony with a specific termination date may be awarded to financially support a spouse while they finish school or find a sustainable job.

Fighting Over Alimony May Not Be A Cost-Effective Solution

I am committed to helping families find lasting solutions that protect everyone's interests. A divorce or any family law dispute is already painful and stressful enough without any additional arguments being added to the mix.

Disputes about alimony are often emotional. It is not uncommon for one spouse to want to fight aggressively against paying. But reaching a compromise often makes the most financial sense. I will protect your financial interests while looking for a common sense compromise that the courts will accept.
