Whether these decisions are made by the court-or if you and your spouse negotiate your own settlement-you need an experienced Clearwater divorce attorney to make sure you continue to live within a reasonable standard of living as you move forward in your life. Our firm can help. We urge you to schedule a consultation as soon as possible.
Where typical families used to consist of a husband who earned income and a wife who stayed at home to care for the children, it has become common for both spouses to earn incomes-and either spouse can be the higher wage earner. These changes removed the virtual guarantee that the husband pays spousal support for the wife, typically until the wife remarries. The courts now recognize that either spouse may need financial assistance, at least temporarily, to retain a reasonable standard of living after divorce.
The courts consider requests for alimony on a case-by-case basis, but spouses can also negotiate a binding settlement outside of court. In either case, the divorce lawyers at The Law Offices of K. Dean Kantaras, P.A. have the skills and experience needed to help ensure their clients are financially protected-whether they receive spousal support payments or need to make payments.
