Provo/Orem Alimony Attorneys
During divorce, one life must become two. When one spouse earns substantially less than the other, or forwent a career to care for children, he or she may struggle to become financially independent. In certain circumstances, spousal support may be awarded to help the lower earning spouse get back on his or her feet. Located in Orem, Utah, Featherstone Family Law helps clients get fair spousal support orders.
How Do I Get Alimony?
In Utah, alimony, or spousal support, is awarded based on need. The court evaluates a range of factors when determining whether to award support, the amount of support and the duration of the payments. Common factors evaluated include:
- Marital standard of living
- The spouse’s ability to pay
- The income and financial resources of each spouse
- The age, health, education and training of each spouse
- The duration of the marriage
- Whether minor children are involved
