Divorce does not alter your contributions to your marriage

One of the main intentions of marriage is to form a partnership between two people in which both play important roles. Every married couple decides how they will divide their tasks and responsibilities. And for a marriage to work, each partner must respect the other’s contributions.

While it is very important for spouses to acknowledge each other’s value during the marriage, it is also important that proper respect is paid if the couple should decide to divorce. As such, if one partner sacrificed his or her career aspirations, then this should be taken into account when the subject of spousal support is broached.

If during the course of your marriage, you dedicated your time to raising the children and other important duties, you likely were not part of the professional workforce. And if you are now facing the prospect of getting back into the work-a-day world following a divorce, you may need extra funds as you transition into your new life. Fortunately, it is possible to request spousal support as part of your settlement as a means of covering these costs.

If you receive spousal support, you can put the money toward going back to school or getting vocational training, which will help make you a more attractive candidate for jobs. In fact, your spousal support could be used to propel you into your dream career.

At the Law Offices of Dorie A. Rogers, we understand your divorce does not negate all of the contributions and sacrifices you made during your marriage. And as such, it is only fair that you receive the financial support you need to begin your life anew. You have earned the opportunities that spousal support can provide. But you may need help getting that to which you are entitled. And on this website, you can learn about the services we provide to divorcing individuals who are pursuing appropriate financial support.
