Spousal Support In Columbus And Central Ohio

Spousal Support in Columbus and Central Ohio

Spousal support in Columbus and Central Ohio divorce cases is much less of a formula-driven process than child support.  Judges have a much broader discretion as to when or if spousal support is to be awarded.  The experience and expertise of the lawyer you select to represent you in your divorce case will have a substantial impact on this issue.

Whether you wish to receive spousal support or are concerned about demands to pay it, the grounds for support will often be hotly contested.  The amount of a spousal support award makes a significant impact on the financial future of both parties.

There are many factors that the Judge will take into consideration, including but not limited to:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The contributions of each party to income, child care, etc.
  • The education of the parties
  • The standard of living enjoyed during the marriage
  • The viability of employment (short and long term)

We utilize our skill, experience and expertise to aggressively pursue our client’s goals for spousal support.  We provide the benefit of extensive research and strategies for “step up” or “step down” support based upon the unique circumstances of the case at hand.  We have the tax impact for both parties analyzed though software programs and sometimes financial experts and we work to maximize the actual cash benefit post-tax.

In addition to the amount of support, we often work to establish or extend (or sometimes shorten) time frames for spousal support payments.  We represent our clients after the decree has been issued when modifications to support may be required or requested due to a significant change or alleged significant change in circumstances for one or both of the parties.

Spousal support in Columbus and Central Ohio is an area where the quality and experience of your divorce attorney will make a substantial difference in the outcome of your case.  You can trust the attorneys at The Law Offices of William L. Geary based upon their decades of experience, the successful track record of the firm at trial, and the recommendations and certifications of the legal industry.
