Need Help with Alimony in Arizona?

Skilled Representation by an Arizona Alimony Attorney

Are you facing alimony problems in Arizona?  Our Arizona alimony attorney and staff can help.  Alimony is also known as spousal maintenance.  Alimony is the regular payments made to a spouse to provide support during or after a divorce in Arizona.

Divorcing spouses can agree to alimony terms or spousal support amounts.  They could also have them determined by an Arizona family court.  When you are going through a divorce, our Maricopa County divorce lawyers can help you determine if you are eligible for alimony and what the chances are that you may be awarded support.

Furthermore, our experienced divorce and family attorneys understand how difficult and emotional divorce proceedings are and how important it is to protect your rights at all times and ensure you are treated fairly.  This is why we provide compassionate and personalized support when you deal with contentious family law issues like alimony.

Alimony Factors in Arizona include:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Existence of any children with physical or mental disabilities
  • Martial misconduct or family violence
  • The ability to be employed and ability to provide for minimum financial needs
  • The contribution as a homemaker
  • Ability of the supporting spouse to provide for the other spouse and pay child support
  • Unnecessary expenditure of community property by either party

Even if the other spouse has been convicted of domestic violence, courts usually assume that an order for alimony or spousal support is not appropriate and therefore must be convinced otherwise based on the above criteria.
