Helping divorcing spouses seek alimony

Getting everything you need at the end of the marriage can be difficult. Many disputes may surround the divorce process, and each spouse might find it difficult to part with certain things. Even if divorcing spouses can come to terms on who gets what, finances can still become a hot topic. During marriage, a couple may understand where their income is coming from and how their bills will get paid; however, post-divorce financial planning can be difficult for some spouses. If a spouse believes he or she will not be able to meet their financial needs following divorce, it is possible to seek alimony, also known as spousal support.
