Financial Support – Your Rights During Separation And Divorce

Attorney Phiambolis of the Law Office of Margaret S. Phiambolis helps clients effectively and efficiently address complex divorce concerns, including the issue of alimony, spousal support and child support. Her goal is to protect the financial interests of her clients and ensure the financial outcomes are reasonable and fair.

Child support and spousal support can be highly contentious issues. Sometimes these issues arise as part of a divorce. Spousal support applies to payments made to assist a spouse during a marital separation. When divorce litigation has started, these payments are referred to as alimony pendente lite (APL). Margaret Phiambolis ensures that her clients understand their rights, helping each one seek practical and sustainable financial outcomes that provide stability during the divorce.

Eligibility And Payment Amounts

There are various factors that go into determining an amount of a child support payment. The income of each parent is taken into account, as well as health care coverage and any special needs, activities or expenses associated with a minor child's best interest. Child support payments may be made to a parent with at least 50 percent physical custodial time. If a parent refuses to abide by the terms of a support order, Margaret Phiambolis will assist you with the enforcement process or advocate for a modification of the support order if the financial circumstances have changed.

Spousal maintenance, also known as alimony, is financial support from the higher-earning spouse to the lesser-earning spouse to offset financial inequality or to help meet reasonable financial needs post-divorce. It is possible to address this issue in negotiations; however, Margaret Phiambolis also represents clients' interests on this matter in court. Numerous factors, including the length of marriage, income, earning history and capacity, contributions of one spouse to the education of the other, and others, are considered in determining the amount and duration of payments.
