Connecticut law allows courts to order spousal support or alimony
after a divorce. Alimony consists of money paid from husband to wife or wife to husband. Alimony may be temporary or permanent and can be paid in a lump sum or in regular payments.
A judge may set alimony at any amount, and because of this, it is in the interest of both spouses to agree on a maintenance amount privately. The attorneys at Gans and Gans Family Law have solid mediation and negotiation experience to represent your needs and provide a strong and objective position from which to arrive at a fair maintenance amount. If our attempts to negotiate on your behalf are not successful, our attorneys will take your case to the next level and represent you in court.
