Determining The Amount Of Support

Child support, alimony, spousal support and alimony pendente lite are all based, at least in part, on a determination of each party's income. In some cases, this determination requires the expertise of trained financial specialists. If one spouse owns their own business, has a professional practice or is self-employed, our attorneys work with business valuation experts to determine income. In some cases, we consult with certified public accountants and other financial accountants to find hidden assets and income sources.

In cases involving alimony, including spousal support or alimony pendente lite, a spouse's earning capacity is an important factor in determining the amount of support awarded. We work with vocational experts to determine a spouse's earning capacity in the current market.

No matter the issue, we will conduct a thorough investigation and analysis of your situation and the other party's finances. Whether in negotiations or in the courtroom, we will aggressively pursue a support agreement or court order that is tailored to your needs.
