It’s important for family law lawyers to understand how spousal support cases are tried. There is no easy method in deciding what amounts should be ordered in Virginia as this area of law is complex.
Van Hooser, Aguirre & Armistead, P.C., has three experienced and skilled spousal support attorneys. They understand how to determine income and the need for spousal support, as they regularly try such matters in Prince William County Court and know how to effectively litigate these matters.
What Is Spousal Support?
Spousal support generally means that one spouse provides the other financial support during the course of a separation and potentially following divorce. The purpose of spousal support is to avoid unjust economic consequences from occurring during a divorce or separation. One spouse should not financially benefit from a divorce or separation while the other spouse suffers.
Orders requiring spousal support involve proofs of income of the two spouses and how much money is available to them. The spouse demanding spousal support payments will have to demonstrate financial need.
Should Alimony Or Spousal Support Be Ordered?
Courts base spousal support or alimony decisions upon facts of the case. It can be difficult discovering what the financial circumstances are for each spouse, but making such determinations is the only way to conclude whether alimony or spousal support orders are appropriate.
Our knowledgeable family law lawyers work as a team, and they know how to find hidden sources of incomes and establish whether there is an argument for spousal support. They will aggressively fight for the truth in every case.
