Experienced Legal Counsel For Clients Throughout Western Michigan
Spousal support, formerly called alimony in Michigan, can be awarded under specific circumstances in Michigan divorce and Michigan separate maintenance cases. There is no specific mathematical Michigan alimony formula for determining whether or not spousal support should be awarded. Rather, each case for spousal support is dependent upon the unique factors of the case and the judge assigned to the case. No two cases are the same, and it is not uncommon for judges to come to completely different decisions based on nearly identical sets of facts.

Let Us Take The Fear Out Of The Unknown
No matter what side of the alimony issue you are on, your financial security is probably based on the outcome of the settlement or court decision.
Michigan is a no-fault divorce state. That does not mean that judges don't take into account who may be at fault for causing the breakup of the marriage. But it also doesn't mean that one party will bear the brunt of the financial fallout.
When it comes to spousal support, it is important to remember two things:
- No spouse gets the full amount of alimony requested
- No spouse will be ordered to pay so much that it leaves him or her destitute
When the future of your financial security is at stake, it can be very intimidating. We work with clients to help educate them about Michigan divorce and spousal support laws so they can have a firm understanding of the factors that most affect their case. Our clients can be confident that they will receive highly qualified legal representation from an experienced family law attorney who is dedicated to their case. At our firm, we are passionately defensive of clients' rights and always seek the best possible result for each client.
