It is important to work with an experienced family law attorney when filing for spousal support. They will help you avoid any potential legal and emotional pitfalls.
When it's time for a hearing, both spouses have an opportunity to present their cases. The judge makes the final decision on whether spousal support will be granted.
If a court orders spousal support, then the making of payments will be determined by the court. The amount and frequency of payments may vary between couples.
It is a good idea to be aware that spousal support can change at any time. The court could revoke the order or change the terms if this becomes necessary.
