New Haven Alimony and Spousal Support Lawyers
Alimony is a factor in two situations in particular – situations where the length of the marriage was very long and situations where there is a great disparity in income or earnings potential of the two parties.
In some situations, property transfers rare preferable to alimony due to their advantageous tax treatment. Unlike child support, alimony is taxable to the recipient, and tax deductible to the person making alimony payments. Also unlike child support, alimony is not calculated by statutory guidelines. It is ordered by the court after an examination of factors such as:
- The length of the marriage;
- Cause of the dissolution;
- Age and health;
- Station and occupation;
- Amount and sources of income;
- Vocational skills and employability;
- Value of the estate;
- Special needs.
While the court is required to consider all of these factors, there is no guidance in the law for how to weigh these individual factors. This leaves much room for dispute, making it important to have a family law attorney on your side capable of making a strong case in court on your behalf. Our New Haven County based attorneys can work with you to protect your interests and achieve your goals.
