The spousal support lawyers of Benson & Associates PLLC in Southfield and Farmington Hills know all areas of family law. Our alimony attorneys fight to ensure you receive what is right and fair in your situation — whether it’s called alimony, spousal support or maintenance. Although the IRS estimates former spouses pay more than $9 billion per year in spousal support, the fact is family court judges can be somewhat capricious in their determinations and spousal support is rarely a given. There are certain guidelines the judges follow, but they are given a tremendous amount of latitude in deciding whether a spouse requesting support is entitled to that support. Some of the more common considerations regarding spousal support include:
While state child support guidelines were put into place at the urging of the federal government — backed up by the threat of withholding federal contributions to state welfare funds — spousal support still falls squarely under state law. At this time, only two states have enacted clear guidelines for spousal support, leaving most other states floundering in this particular area. Our divorce lawyers in Southfield have a deep understanding of the law to keep you from floundering.
