Alimony & Spousal Support

Alimony and spousal support are the same concept and, in WV, is not derived from a calculation.  Either spouse may be ordered to pay alimony, and Family Court Judges are given broad discretion in making alimony determinations.  There are numerous types of alimony and each one is unique. 

Depending on the type of alimony an individual is seeking, there are several factors that a Family Court Judge must consider and weigh.  Since there are many nuances and elements, when dealing with spousal support, alimony laws can often be difficult to comprehend. 

We are here for you to discuss all of your options and avenues relating to you and your unique situation.
