When facing a divorce, you need an ally and advocate

An estimated 50 percent of U.S. marriages end in divorce. While divorce is certainly common, every individual and his or her circumstances are unique. The divorce attorneys at the law firm Peter D'Angelo, Attorney At Law, PLC understand the personal loss and devastation that often accompany divorce and aim to support and help an individual work successfully through the divorce process.

Will I automatically receive spousal support from my wealthier ex-spouse?

In decades past, spousal support or alimony was typically awarded to an ex-wife. Spousal support was intended to provide a financial safety net for women who may have never worked outside the home and likely had no college degree and few marketable job skills. In addition, divorced women were often awarded primary child custody and so the wellbeing and standard of living of shared children was also a consideration.
