Determining Fair Spousal Support Payments

When a couple is going through a divorce, it will have a dramatic impact upon their financial future. If one of the spouses earns significantly more money than the other, it may be possible that the courts will award spousal support, or alimony, to the other spouse. The amount and duration of the support that is to be paid will depend upon the couple’s situation, and often, there are substantial disagreements over the need or ability to pay the support.

At the Law Offices of David T. Garnes, LLC, we offer skilled assistance to clients going through a divorce who are requesting or contesting a spousal support award. Our founding lawyer, David T. Garnes, has 15 years of experience resolving family law cases. He will present a clear picture of your case to the courts and work hard to find a positive resolution to your case.

Understanding How The Laws Impact Your Case

There are significant differences in the way that New Jersey and Pennsylvania treat alimony determinations. In Pennsylvania, spousal support is based upon a number of different factors that the court will consider. In New Jersey, the state has recently passed a law that carefully states how alimony should be calculated. It has also eliminated permanent alimony. Those with existing spousal support obligations in New Jersey may have an opportunity to revisit prior spousal support awards with the passage of the new law.

We sit down with each client to ensure that they understand the law before their case proceeds. We will answer any questions that you have about spousal support, and we will help you learn about what may happen in your case. We want you to feel confident that we are committed to protecting your best interests.
