Customized Representation for Your Financial Needs

Phillip M. George & Catherine Gasser, Attorneys at Law, will help you determine the best spousal support agreement to fit your financial needs. There are several different kinds of spousal support. They are:

  • Transitional: Commonly considered “temporary” alimony that is paid to one party by the other party for a set amount of time
  • Lump sum: A fixed amount of money paid by one party to the other party
  • Rehabilitative: Money paid by one party to the other party for a certain period of time until the former spouse becomes economically self-sufficient
  • In futuro: Commonly considered “permanent” alimony that is paid by one party to the other party, unless there is a modification to the spousal support agreement

Our lawyers can also advise you regarding post-agreement modifications when the court may alter alimony payments due to a change in circumstances. A modification may be pursued when there is a significant change in circumstances, such as:

  • Remarriage of the former spouse
  • Cohabitation of the former spouse
  • Death of the former spouse

We can also assist you with other issues that may arise because of your divorce, such as child custody and visitation and division of property.
