Child Support & Alimony Issues

Child support and spousal support, also called Alimony, are two of the most complex issues to decide when a marriage ends. It is critical to work with an experienced family law attorney to ensure that your financial rights, and the financial rights of your children, are protected.

Child Support

Financial support for children after divorce can have a tremendous impact on their well-being and your financial situation moving forward.  Judy Whisnant is an experienced child support attorney dedicated to protecting the interests of your children during all phases of the process.

In some instances of shared custody, child support may be unnecessary.

By working with an experienced child support lawyer, you can ensure the financial future of your child. 

Spousal Support

One important issue that must be addressed in a divorce is spousal support or alimony. Many forms of alimony exist. Who will pay spousal support and what the amount will be depend on a number of factors such including:

  • Standard of living during marriage
  • Dependency and Ability to Provide Support
  • The length of the marriage
  • The financial resources of each party.
  • The age of each party

I am an accomplished spousal support attorney who can help guide you to an agreement. Alimony can also be awarded as temporary support or permanent support. Determining alimony can be a complex issue, with different types available. I can help to ensure a smooth transition into the next phase. Alimony is separate from child support, but child support is often considered when determining alimony payments.
