Trusted Family Law Advocate Providing Effective Solutions to Resolve Your Legal Matters

Joplin Spousal Support Attorney

Guiding Alimony & Spousal Support Cases in Jasper County

Following a divorce, the primary concern of the court is to ensure that neither party is left without resources. A spousal support agreement establishes that both spouses can maintain living expenses until the lesser-earning spouse is able to financially take care of themselves. Also known as alimony, the spouse requesting the payment needs to prove that they require financial resources before they are self-supporting and the court will consider whether or not they are eligible.

Spousal support can be awarded based upon:

  • Age and physical and emotional health of each spouse
  • Assets and debts
  • Conduct during marriage
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Financial resources of each spouse
  • Property divided during a divorce
  • Potential for education, training, and earning
  • Standard of living established during the marriage

At the Law Office of David Meyer, our Joplin divorce lawyer has extensive experience negotiating spousal support arrangements. We can represent your rights and interests to pursue an alimony award that is in your best interest.
