The goal of alimony is to balance the inequities in the parties’ earning capacity and to allow the lower earning spouse to maintain the standard of living that was enjoyed during the marriage. There are several types of alimony, including:
- Permanent alimony
- Limited duration alimony
- Lump-sum alimony
- Reimbursement alimony
- Rehabilitative alimony
Many factors are taken into consideration when determining if alimony is appropriate for your matter. The attorneys at Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., are experienced and understand how to calculate alimony appropriately.
