Creating or Modifying Alimony Payments Serving Families in Stamford & the Entire Fairfield County Area

Spousal support was created to assist divorced spouses who relied on their former partner’s income, it is also called alimony. It is normally the partner with the higher income that is ordered to provide support. It is important to remember that spousal support is not guaranteed. The courts do not have to order the payments unless it can be demonstrated that one spouse needs the support to maintain their lifestyle. Whether you are trying to earn alimony payments from a divorce, prevent yourself from having to pay them, or want to file for an adjustment in the alimony agreement, it is important to hire a knowledgeable attorney who can explain your argument in a legal context to the court.

Connecticut & Alimony

In Connecticut, a judge can order temporary or permanent alimony payments. It was once common for permanent alimony to be ordered, but this is becoming a thing of the past. It is now expected that one spouse will start seeking ways to sustain themselves after the marriage ends. Permanent alimony is usually ordered if one spouse has a disability or there are other obstacles that would prevent him or her from obtaining employment.

Your best chance for filing a modification to an alimony agreement is if either you or your former spouse undergoes a dramatic change in circumstances, such as losing a job or receiving a large sum of money from an inheritance. Other factors that can affect alimony include:

  • Child custody
  • The length of a marriage
  • The health of both partners
  • The financial arrangement before your divorce
  • A spouse’s educational and employment background
