Alimony, which is sometimes known as spousal support or spousal maintenance, is ordered by a court in some Utah divorce cases. In situations in which it is ordered, the amount of alimony will vary depending on both spouses’ incomes or potential incomes, the length of the marriage and several other factors.
When it comes to divorce, alimony is often a sensitive issue. But it is a necessary part of the process to help a financially weaker spouse get back on their feet. Because the court must consider several different factors, the amount of alimony can often be unpredictable to determine. That is why it is vital to have an experienced and knowledgeable Salt Lake City alimony attorney on your side to get the best results.
