Divorce is a life-changing time where legally complex and emotionally charged issues arise between a couple. An attorney who fights to protect your rights and tailors solutions to your specific goals is important. At the law offices of Amy M. Levine & Associates, we start by listening to our clients to identify their needs and resolve their problems efficiently and cost-effectively.

Reaching A Spousal Support Agreement

Money-related issues can create tension between a divorcing couple, especially when it comes to spousal support, more commonly known as alimony. Both payers and payees are already looking at a new and uncertain chapter of their lives.

Contact Amy M. Levine & Associates to schedule a free initial consultation through our intake form or by calling 614-360-2942 in Columbus, Ohio.

Unlike child support, spousal support is not governed by specific statutes. Determinations are based upon certain factors that include length of the marriage, income of both spouses and the financial needs of spouse receiving alimony. Continuing payments could provide for a transition to self-sufficiency or the agreement could be more long term.

It is important to note that the spouse receiving alimony will pay taxes on that “income” while the paying husband or wife will be able to write it off their taxes.

Throughout the entire process of your divorce, we will remain at your side, employing our resources, skills and knowledge to secure the results you seek. While mediating a settlement saves time and money, we will not hesitate to take any aspect of your divorce to trial.

At the law offices of Amy M. Levine & Associates, we recognize that not all of our clients enjoy significant assets. Some people need divorce counsel, but cannot afford a lawyer. For them, we provide pro bono services.

Contact Us

New clients receive a free consultation from an experienced Ohio alimony attorney. Contact us online or call us at 614-360-2942 in Columbus. We offer payment plans.
