New Haven Alimony Attorney

In Connecticut, alimony for a former spouse is awarded after the Court considers various legal factors.

Typically, alimony is awarded to a financially disadvantaged or dependent spouse, one who has fewer financial resources, a lesser earning capacity or significant parenting duties compared to the other partner in the marriage. The court also considers the property division awards when determining what amount of alimony is appropriate.

Attorney Marlow can discuss the specific detailed factors the Court considers and help guide you through the process whether you are attempting to secure alimony or defend against a claim for it by your spouse. Through financial discovery of marital financial records and investigation of the facts, Attorney Marlow can help determine an appropriate amount of alimony. In some cases, especially those where one of the parents is a high-net worth individual or owns a business, it may be recommended to obtain the assistance of forensic accountants or other experts, in order to determine a party’s true income and achieve the optimal result through negotiations or in court.
