ALIMONY & SPOUSAL SUPPORT
SOUTH CAROLINA ALIMONY AND SPOUSAL SUPPORT ATTORNEYS
HELPING YOU WITH PAYMENT ISSUES
Divorces generally have significant financial consequences. If there is a large income disparity between the two spouses, the person who earns less may be awarded alimony, monetary support designed to allow individuals to maintain the lifestyle they grew accustomed to during marriage.
At the law firm of Harvey & Battey, P.A., in Beaufort, South Carolina, we help clients throughout the Lowcountry area understand the laws governing alimony. To discuss your specific situation with our attorneys, contact our office. Family Law services are offered on an hourly fee basis.
HELPING CLIENTS OBTAIN SUPPORT
Alimony, which is sometimes referred to as spousal support, is not automatically granted. It is determined by a judge, who takes several factors into consideration. These include:
- The length of the marriage
- The age and health of spouses
- Education levels and work history of both parties
- Grounds for the divorce
- Income disparity
If your soon-to-be former spouse earns a substantially higher income than you do, our attorneys may be able to help you obtain temporary or permanent alimony. At the negotiation table or in the courtroom, we will aggressively work to get the financial support you need to begin the next chapter of your life.
DEFENDING AGAINST UNREASONABLE ALIMONY CLAIMS
Our lawyers also know how to defend clients when spouses seek alimony they do not genuinely need. If your spouse is requesting support when he or she has the ability to be self-supporting, our attorneys will work diligently to protect your interests. Our goal is to protect your interests.
