Spousal Support

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE SPOUSAL SUPPORT YOU NEED

Spousal support or alimony refers to the financial support provided to a spouse after a legal separation. It is typically paid only for a limited amount of time in order to allow the recipient to receive the necessary training or education to become financially self-supporting. This is often one of the more highly contested issues in a divorce matter.

The Law Offices of George J. Bauerle III provides legal counsel on the full scope of legal issues involved in divorce, including determination of spousal support. We invest the time necessary to gain a full understanding of your situation to present a clear picture of your needs as you prepare for post-divorce life.

With offices conveniently located throughout Rhode Island in North Kingstown and Westerly, we’re always available to meet with you personally to discuss your future.

FACTORS THAT DETERMINE SPOUSAL SUPPORT

• Both parties’ occupations and income

• Duration of the marriage

• Time it will take for the recipient to find employment or acquire education

• Childrens’ needs

• Standard of living both parties enjoyed while married
