The end of your marriage, whether by mutual agreement between you and your spouse, or because one spouse has decided to pursue the termination of the marriage, may have a significant effect on the lifestyle that you and your spouse enjoyed during the marriage. The extent to which the ending of the marriage will affect your lifestyle will depend on a variety of factors. If you live in or around Hyde Park or other areas in Greater Cincinnati, you need the help of an experienced spousal support/alimony attorney.
Either spouse can request that the court order the other spouse to pay spousal support/alimony payments. If you are entitled to spousal support, this will help you deal with the financial changes that will accompany the end of your marriage. Such changes are inevitable in most cases as a result of the fact that the end of the marriage will mean that you and your spouse will now have to maintain two households rather than one, without any significant increase in total income.
John Heilbrun can answer your questions about spousal support/alimony, as well as provide you with insight into factors that need to be considered in determining whether you will likely either be entitled to receive spousal support or ordered to pay spousal support, and if so, how much and for how long. He can also help you consider potential future conditions that may later affect the amount of the spousal support that you are either required to pay or to which you may be entitled, and how much future authority to grant the court to exercise regarding future changes in spousal support.
If you are entering a dissolution or divorce proceeding and believe alimony/spousal support may be an issue, please contact the Law Office of John Heilbrun today to schedule your consultation. Mr. Heilbrun is proud to serve clients in or around Hyde Park, Blue Ash, Lebanon and other areas in Greater Cincinnati.
