If you are considering filing for divorce or are already a party to a marital breakup, you may have questions about whether or not spousal maintenance (formerly known as spousal support or alimony) will be granted. You want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to protect your rights, someone who can help you identify and implement the solutions that are in your best interests.
At MacGillis Wiemer, LLC, we are pragmatic, effective and creative trial lawyers who take a common-sense approach to family law matters, including issues related to spousal maintenance. We offer clear and straightforward counsel, working tirelessly to prepare the most compelling arguments to support your claims. We place a premium on attention to detail and use the most recent technology to provide a high level of support to our clients and to minimize the use of natural resources.
We represent men and women at any stage of a spousal maintenance dispute, whether you have just filed for divorce and need a temporary order while your divorce is pending, or your divorce is final and you need assistance with an effort to modify or enforce a final order. We will prepare and file all documents required by the court and will be your voice in all hearings or proceedings.
When you hire us, we will carefully review the facts and circumstances of your situation to determine whether spousal maintenance is warranted and, if so, the amount, duration and frequency of spousal support payments. We will look at the factors the court considers when evaluating a request for spousal maintenance, including the length of your marriage, the age and health of the parties, the earning capacity of both parties, how marital property was divided, the assessment of child support obligations and the education of the parties, and other factors that may be appropriate.
