Experienced Representation in Complex Divorces

For many people who are going through a divorce, the subject of alimony or spousal support can be overwhelming. This is a decision that can have a lasting impact on your financial and personal life. Spousal support arguments can be difficult for all parties involved in the process.

Having the representation of an accomplished Novi spousal support lawyer can ensure your best interests and rights are safeguarded every step of the way. The Law Offices of Elaine Stypula has helped many clients through especially complex spousal support cases and divorces and are committed to securing optimal results.

Some of the different types of alimony a spouse might be awarded include:

  • Permanent: If a couple was married for a substantial amount of time or the receiving spouse has a disability, permanent alimony might be awarded, which would remain in effect until the death of either party or if the recipient remarries.
  • Gross: If gross alimony is awarded, the paying spouse must pay the full amount in a single lump sum.
  • Rehabilitative support: To assist the supported spouse for a short amount of time, a judge might grant rehabilitative support. The supported spouse can use these payments to return to school and find gainful employment.

Spousal Support Considerations in Michigan

The court reviews specific factors in alimony decisions, including:

  • How long the parties were married
  • The ages of both parties
  • The health and needs of each party
  • Each party's current financial situation
  • The standard of living during marriage
  • Each party’s ability to work

Modifications to Support Arrangements

If you have experienced a change in your financial situation, you can appeal to the court for a modification. However, if you have agreed to spousal support that cannot be modified, you will normally not be able to change the arrangement. Spousal support payments usually come to an end when the party receiving payment re-marries.
