SALT LAKE CITY ALIMONY LAWYERSSeek Financial Support After Your Divorce

If your marriage was financially secure and your partner made more money than you, you might have stayed at home with the kids or worked part-time so that you could maintain the household. The problem with that is that it becomes very difficult to support yourself after a divorce since employers are usually looking for people who have not had a break in their experience or have been working full-time.

This puts you at an unfair disadvantage, and you may not be able to live comfortably on your own after your divorce. The good news is Utah law allows for alimony payments to be negotiated in these types of situations.

Many don’t realize that they may be entitled to support. To learn about your options, talk to our Salt Lake City divorce attorneys by calling 801-274-7001 today.

How Can Alimony Help You?

Under Utah law, alimony can last up to as long as you were married. That means that if you were married for 20 years, you may be entitled to payments from your former spouse for up to two decades, leading to a significant boost in your financial security. If you owned and subsequently keep your home in your divorce, alimony may allow you to remain in the house and continue making mortgage payments.

Courts will look at the following factors when determining alimony eligibility:

  • The length of the marriage
  • If there were children or dependents
  • Both spouses’ earning capacity
  • If one spouse was “at fault” for the marriage ending, such as by adultery or neglect

No matter your situation, it is important that you talk to our Salt Lake City divorce lawyers to explore your options and eligibility regarding alimony. Whether your divorce is going through mediation or you anticipate litigation, LJ Law can help.
