Helping Mississippi Couples Establish Alimony
Family law matters typically include major transitions for everyone involved. Divorce involves dismantling a life that a couple has built together. Some people may question if they will have financial security post divorce. A couple’s assets are divided through Mississippi’s equitable distribution process. For some, this will eliminate the need for alimony as it helps set up both individuals financially. When property distribution is insufficient, alimony — also known as spousal support — may be necessary. At Hollis Legal Solutions, PLLC, we understand that the divorce process is emotionally and mentally exhausting. We are sensitive to your needs and will help provide knowledgeable, compassionate guidance to help you move forward.
Guiding You With Compassion
Every divorce is different. The needs of individuals in the divorce process are unique. The court considers a variety of factors when making decisions regarding spousal support.
Factors considered by the court when awarding alimony include:
- Income and expenses
- Health and earning capacity
- Financial need
- Obligations and assets
- Length of marriage
- Minor children
- Standard of living during the marriage
- Fault and misconduct
- Tax consequences
- Marital waste
A trusted family law attorney can evaluate your case to help you understand your options so that you can move forward financially secure.
Reviewing And Examining All Options
The court will evaluate both parties when considering an alimony award. The amount and type of alimony awarded varies, and is dependent on the circumstances and need of each individual. There are four types of alimony available under Mississippi law.
- Periodic alimony
- Lump-sum alimony
- Rehabilitative alimony
- Reimbursement alimony
