Kalamazoo Spousal Support Lawyers

Western Michigan Alimony Attorney

In Michigan, not every divorce will result in an award of spousal support. However, the issue should at least be considered, especially in a long-term marriage where there is income disparity between the two parties.

At the law firm of Peter A. D' Angelo, PLC, we represent men and women going through the divorce process in Portage, Kalamazoo, Battle Creek and other communities throughout Western Michigan. Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to discuss issues such as alimony.

Will Alimony Be an Issue in My Case?

Whether or not alimony is a part of your case will depend on specific factors, some of which include:

  • Length of marriage
  • The ability of one spouse to pay support
  • The needs of the receiving party
  • The age and health of the receiving party
  • The roles each party assumed during the marriage
  • Fault of a spouse in the marriage dissolution

Unlike child support, there are no set state support guidelines to determine the amount of support or the length of time it may continue. Alimony may or may not be modifiable, depending how the agreement or final order is drafted. Spousal support can also be discontinued if the receiving spouse remarries or cohabitates with another person as if he or she were married. It depends on the facts and final agreement of the parties.
