The Spousal Support Manual


Going through a messy divorce? Unsure about how to secure alimony? Worry not, because this ebook is just what you need to deal with the issue of ‘spousal support’ head on and without any fear.


Get It Right The First Time

The issue of spousal support is a thorn on the side of either participant in divorce proceedings. It is an issue which involves the state of finances, both yours and your ex-spouse’s, which is why it is often dealt with a lot of hostility by either side.

Often spousal support related negotiations embitter participants if they cannot reach a mutually beneficial arrangement. Thus it is vital you acquaint yourself with the various legal definitions and the stages involved in a spousal support settlement before sitting at the bargaining table. And even if you have a capable attorney well-versed with the nooks and crannies of family law, he or she may not explain to you every single thing involved with a spousal maintenance agreement.

This is where this handy spousal support ebook comes in. It will educate you on the dos and don’ts while going about negotiating a spousal maintenance you deserve or deserve to let your ex-spouse have, without sacrificing your own financial interests.

Remember that spousal support issues do not receive as much favor as child support related considerations with the courts and judges, unless one party is in dire financial straits. Once the divorce decree has been handed over and the entry made by the court clerk or once you have signed the settlement agreement under oath it is notoriously difficult to modify the spousal support clause. Child support amounts can be updated with considerable ease but that is not the case with alimony.
