Newark Spousal Support Lawyer

Of all the decisions that must be made in a divorce, determining spousal support is often among the most contentious.

At the office of McCoy & McCoy, Attorneys at Law, you will find an experienced Newark spousal support attorney who can advocate on your behalf during negotiations and in court to secure a full and fair agreement.

We work to reach agreement on spousal support, also known as alimony, during negotiations in order to allow you to retain more control over the outcome. If a fair agreement cannot be reached, however, we are highly skilled at assembling all of the information necessary to present a strong argument on your behalf in court. Contact attorney Carl McCoy for more information on your spousal support issues.

Licking County Alimony Lawyer

In deciding whether to order spousal support, how much and for how long, Ohio family courts consider a host of factors, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The income and assets of both parties, including retirement accounts, pensions and investments
  • The relative earning abilities of both parties
  • The time and expense necessary for the spouse seeking support to acquire education, training or job experience
  • The lost income production capacity of either party that resulted from the party's marital responsibilities

The court can order temporary spousal support, which is paid for a specified length of time (a matter of months or a few years), or it may continue indefinitely. The support may be structured to terminate upon the occurrence of a specified event such as a remarriage.

As with child support, life occurrences can produce significant changes in income and expenses that warrant modifications to original divorce decrees. We can review your situation and advocate on your behalf for an adjustment or work to block a modification request.
