Understanding Child Support And Spousal Support Agreements

During a divorce, it can be difficult to keep things in perspective when dividing your assets, negotiating visitation schedules and reaching agreement regarding child support and spousal support. At the Law Office of Marla Zide, LLC, we protect your interests and those of your child.

If you can reach agreement out of court about how to structure child support and spousal support, you stand to benefit by saving time, money and a lot of stress. Many factors will be considered in the process, such as the length of the marriage, children and behavioral factors like adultery.

Attorney Marla Zide can explain the myriad options available to you and help you and your spouse work together to draft an agreement that works for all involved.

  • Spousal support (alimony): After a divorce, you may be required to pay support to your former spouse. Or in the alternative, you may be entitled to support. There are factors the court considers when making an award of alimony. Speaking with an attorney can help you determine the best course of action when negotiating a support agreement.
  • Child support: Your children need the support of their parents. If you are required to pay monetary support, you can negotiate with your spouse to structure an agreement that is agreeable to you and benefits your children.
