Michigan Spousal Support/Alimony Lawyers
Alimony Issues? Call Now for Help!
In divorce cases, the courts have the discretion to award either party spousal support/alimony. Michigan law provides the courts with a great deal of discretion in these situations, stating only that “an award of spousal support must be just and reasonable under the circumstances” of a particular case. In determining whether or not to award spousal support in a particular case, the courts consider factors relevant to your particular case.
The court can fashion an award of spousal support in a number of ways based upon the circumstances of each case. The award of spousal support can be permanent or for a term of years and either modifiable or non-modifiable. The issue of spousal support is often a contentious one as it can result in financial devastation to both parties if it is not argued appropriately.
