When a couple separates, the Court may order that one spouse pay spousal support to the other spouse. Spousal support is analogous to the word “alimony.” The determination of the eligibility and amount of spousal support one is entitled to receive is a complicated issue. You should speak with an attorney to determine whether or not your situation warrants an order for spousal support as well as the amount.
Property Division and Complex Property Issues – Parties going through dissolution of marriage must decide how to divide their assets and debts acquired/incurred during the marriage. The division of property can be complicated and involves a multi-layered process. The parties’ assets and debts must be ascertained. It must also be determined whether or not property and/or assets are community property or separate property. These assets and debts must be valued and then divided equally (if community property). The rules governing the division of property can be complex and may sometimes call for the retention of a forensic accountant and/or other experts. A lawyer can walk you through this process and determine the best way to proceed to a resolution.
