Financial Assistance Can Come In Many Forms

After a dissolution of marriage, the courts will look at a number of factors when determining whether spousal support is necessary. The earning capacity of each party, the length of the marriage and each individual’s health are among the most important. Since it is unusual for both parties to make the same amount of money, one partner may need temporary support. This helps them get by until they have received proper job training, get a new job or are in a situation where they can make more money. Whether you are the one paying or are the one receiving, it is important to understand how the law applies to your situation.

Similar to child support payments, how long spousal support is in place is unique to the circumstances. Sometimes it is permanent. Other times, it is only temporary. It’s important to know that financial assistance doesn’t just come in the form of a check. It can come in other ways, too. Sometimes a former spouse will pay for the other person’s education or job training. Whether you are able to reach the terms of this arrangement on your own or are forced to go in front of a judge, Mr. Lodermeier is here for you every step of the way. He will act as your strongest advocate.
