Omaha Spousal Support Attorney

If you need an Omaha spousal support lawyer, contact Higgins Law at 402-933-7600 to schedule a consultation.

Spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance or alimony, is calculated differently from child support. The court will consider several factors in determining whether spousal support ought to be awarded and in what amount. Factors such as length of marriage, financial contribution of each spouse, forgone educational or employment opportunities and the earning potential of each party will be taken into consideration. Whether you are seeking alimony or fighting it, your attorney must present an effective, well-reasoned argument as to why such support is necessary — or not. Count on us to develop a strong case strategy after thoroughly investigating your situation.
