Alimony & Spousal Support

Couples who are divorcing often wonder whether they will be entitled to receive, or will need to pay, alimony.  Unlike child support, no statutory alimony guidelines exist.

In Connecticut, alimony is not just a function of income. While income does play an important role in the determination of alimony, it is not the only factor. Alimony is a much more complex proposition based on a variety of factors including the length of the marriage, causes of the divorce, earning capacity of the spouses, and the existence of prenuptial agreements, among others.  At Freed Marcroft, we listen carefully to our clients’ priorities, allowing us to articulate their needs to the court to protect their lifestyle.

Connecticut caselaw on alimony is dynamic and evolving.  Freed Marcroft’s attorneys are avid proponents of continuing education in various aspects of family law, and both attend and frequently present at seminars on divorce-related issues throughout Connecticut.
