Financial stress and spousal support: Your solution

When you're married, things may go very well, and you may be happy in every aspect of your life. However, many marriages end in divorce over time as a result of people growing apart, infidelity and other causes.

When your marriage is coming to an end, you want to make sure that you're going to be financially stable on your own. For someone who has not worked for some time due to having children with your spouse, spousal support might be the right choice.

Why should you consider asking for spousal support?

If you have taken time off work and stayed at home with your child, you may need time to find a new job or to focus on your education. Judges and courts understand this, which is why spousal support is sometimes granted in cases where one spouse has not been working or has been delaying their career for the sake of their family.

If you plan to seek spousal support, it's a wise choice to sit down with your attorney and work out a budget as well as the amount you'll need for your education and living arrangements following your divorce. In some cases, you may be granted spousal support for several years, giving you some financial stability while you build up your career and become financially independent.

Once you determine how much you need in support, your attorney can help you fight for it in court or negotiate for support outside court. With the right arrangements, you can move forward after your divorce without significant financial stressors.
