Columbia Alimony Attorneys
At the Law Offices of Shea & Barron, we understand that every family is unique. That is why we tailor our family law services to suit the individual needs of our clients. We provide a full range of family law and domestic relations issues, including alimony, also known as spousal support and maintenance.
Experienced Lexington Spousal Support Attorneys
Our Columbia alimony attorneys counsel both men and women on their rights and obligations regarding spousal support. The South Carolina family court determines spousal support after reviewing a number of factors such as:
- Length of the marriage
- Standard of living established during the marriage
- Individual incomes of both parties
- Potential earning capacity, if either spouse is currently unemployed
- Physical or emotional disabilities that would prevent either spouse from seeking gainful employment
- Terms of valid prenuptial agreements
- Other factors the court considers equitable and just
We work closely with clients to ensure that payments are fairly given and clearly defined as to the dollar amount and duration of payment. We offer compassionate yet frank advice so clients can form realistic expectations regarding their spousal support obligations.
Modifying an Existing Agreement
Our firm also assists clients with obtaining a modification for an existing spousal support agreement. Should your former spouse receive a promotion, remarry or relocate, our lawyers will represent your right to discontinue support obligations or increase the amount, depending on your unique circumstances.
