Franklin Alimony Lawyer

Determining alimony (or spousal support) is not the same in every case. Tennessee courts use a specific set of factors to determine alimony on a case-by-case basis, and the award of alimony will be decided on by the court once child support has been finalized. Typically, I guide my clients toward a negotiated settlement with court approval to enforce the agreement by court order.

Rather than leaving your alimony decision to the sole discretion of the judge, it is beneficial to retain some control and pursue options for alimony in divorce mediation or negotiation. I am a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 Family Mediator, and I have had great success in working out negotiated settlements with clients over the years as a Franklin alimony attorney. In more than 15 years of experience in divorce cases, I have helped hundreds of people in the middle Tennessee region achieve the results that meet their objectives.

Contact the law office of Judy A. Oxford, Attorney at Law, today to schedule a consultation. We will discuss your case, and I will lay out your options in our first meeting.

Advocating for Your Rights and Proceeding With Your Informed Decisions

It is critical to account for all the factors that can affect an alimony award. Disparities in income, especially in high net worth divorce, can greatly impact the lifestyles of the opposing parties if a fair spousal support agreement is not reached in accordance with each party's best interests. I work closely with opposing counsel to determine need of alimony, ability to pay and several other factors, including:

There are several types of alimony award to consider for your situation, including temporary alimony while the divorce is pending, permanent alimony (alimony in futuro), lump-sum alimony (alimony in solido), rehabilitative alimony and transitional alimony. It is important to consult with an experienced lawyer in order to gain realistic expectations concerning alimony awards and to advocate with passion and influence for your best interests.

Additionally, I help people seek alimony modifications if circumstances have substantially changed for one reason or another.
