Alimony/Spousal Support

Bridgeport, Connecticut, Alimony Attorneys

It can be difficult to manage bills, mortgage payments, and other daily needs following a divorce. A couple has suddenly transitioned from two individuals contributing to the household tasks, upbringing of children, and household income. Now each individual must manage a comparable standard of living with limited resources.

At the law office of Gans & Gans, we understand the frustrations and difficulties a person can face following a separation or divorce. Our experienced family law attorneys offer guidance and skilled legal counsel to help clients resolve alimony/spousal maintenance concerns.

If an agreement is not reached regarding property division or alimony, Connecticut laws set forth factors to determine alimony/spousal support payments which would be fair. Alimony is not guaranteed. It is based upon the specific facts and needs in each case. If an agreement is not reached, the courts utilize the following factors to determine what is fair:

  • Age
  • Health
  • Length of the marriage
  • Cause for the termination of the marriage
  • Current occupation
  • Assets and income
  • Job skills, education, and earning capacity
  • Ability to obtain employment
  • Other individual needs, such as estate needs

Our family lawyers believe that it is in most clients' best interest to attempt to resolve alimony and other divorce issues without hostility or contentiousness. We work to achieve an agreement on alimony, property division, and other family law issues in order to reduce the emotional, physical, and financial strain of the divorce on both parties. We are recognized throughout the Bridgeport area for our resolution-focused tactics.

However, if an agreement cannot be reached, or it is in a client's best interest to proceed to trial, we have the experience and trial skill to protect our client's interests in trial.
