Spousal Support

Gresham Spousal Support Lawyers

Spousal support, also known as spousal alimony, can be the source of emotional stress and disagreement throughout the resolution of the divorce process. It is the goal of our experienced Gresham spousal support attorneys to ensure the process runs smoothly and an accurate support figure is compromised. Spousal support is more complicated than determining child support as there are no established formulas. It is necessary to consider many factors such as the ages of the parties, their respective incomes and ability to support themselves, their role as a caregiver of children during the marriage and other factors.

Whether you are paying or receiving spousal support, your lawyer will carefully review the family finances to uncover all income and expenses which must be addressed to arrive at a correct amount of support. Our clients can rely on Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law for our attorneys’ attention to detail, thorough preparation and dedication to the best interests of our client. Depending on your position as either the paying person or if you are on the receiving side, you have the right to avoid financial ruin following a long-term marriage. Let us help you make wise choices.

Multnomah County Alimony Attorneys

In Oregon, the court will carefully consider numerous factors regarding spousal support, including:

  • Length of marriage
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Age of the parties
  • Health of the parties
  • Role as parent to the parties’ children during the marriage
  • Contribution to the other parties education or earning ability
  • Earning capacity of the parties

Spousal support can be for a short period of time (transitional) to allow one party to re-enter the workforce or indefinite (maintenance support) after a long-term marriage. Additionally, consideration will be given to a spouse who has sacrificed a potential career in an effort to maintain the family and household. Contact our firm with questions regarding the determination of spousal support or the options available. If you were awarded spousal support in the initial judgment of divorce, you may need advice and counsel regarding a support enforcement action.
