Divorce can be an emotional time, which is why the Law Office of John D. Mills can be an invaluable resource through the entire process. I can act as a dispassionate advocate who will look only at the facts in the case in an effort to get you a fair settlement based on state law. I handle cases related to equitable distribution of property, alimony, and child custody and support, and I also handle cases involving domestic violence.
Alimony is often paid by the higher earning spouse to the lower earning spouse when the marriage is dissolved. A judge will look at a number of factors including the length of the marriage, your ability to find work after the marriage and whether or not you made any concessions during the marriage that limited your ability to make money.
