Facing Alimony Issues: Seek Legal Representation from a St. Louis Alimony Attorney

Alimony can be a tricky area in a divorce and it is best to seek out advice from an experienced St. Louis alimony attorney.

In Missouri, maintenance, also known as alimony, may be awarded to either spouse. A court must find that the spouse who is seeking alimony is lacking the assets to adequately meet his or her needs and is unable to support his or herself through appropriate employment. A St. Louis alimony attorney can fight on your behalf in order to help you establish a stable financial future. Continue reading

New Jersey Commission Formed To Study State’s Alimony Laws

A New Jersey group is one step closer to possibly getting some of the state's alimony laws updated. Legislation approved Monday will create a temporary group to study state's laws and recommend changes to the legislature and Gov. Chris Christie. 

Sean Kean (R – Monmouth) helped sponsor the bill. He and others who are pushing for reform have said when there are changes in circumstances for any parties involved, those should be considered and a possible alimony modification may be appropriate. 

The commission has been given nine months for its study. It is expected to compare the state's current laws to other states' laws. 

Part of the push for a reform of alimony laws has been driven by the economy and the number of people who have become unemployed and have had trouble securing a job, yet still are held accountable for making the ordered payments. 

Currently, more than 95 percent of all alimony recipients are female. 

If you need to discuss a legal matter concerning family problems, it is imperative to speak with an attorney who focuses on such cases. Call today for your free, initial consultation.
