There are many things that you must do when you are going through a divorce. These include practical matters like deciding where you will live and emotional matters like how you are going to cope with the fallout. Having a plan for handling all these issues is imperative. We are here to help you with the practical matters so that you are able to focus on the emotional aspects.

One of the practical things that isn’t often thought about is the financial backing that you might need to start this new life. If you have been a stay-at-home spouse, one of the first things that you may have to focus on is finding a job. This is difficult because you may not have the resume and job history to get the job you want.

You might be able to receive alimony to help bridge the financial gap. You likely won’t be able to get permanent payments. Instead, you may have only temporary payments that can help you pay the bills while you get the education or job experience that you need to be able to support yourself.

We can help you determine what support amounts you might qualify for with alimony. There are two ways that you can receive these payments. You and your ex can work out an arrangement between yourselves or you might need to turn to the court to seek an order. In either instance, you must be prepared to make your case to show why you need to receive these payments. Don’t worry – we can help you to put these together.
