Make Sure You Get The Spousal Support You Need
Spousal support — also known as alimony — is essential to many people moving forward after a divorce. Spouses who have been out of the workforce for many years, or have never been in the workforce, could find themselves without a sufficient income. Spousal support provides those people with the means to continue a reasonable standard of living or may provide for career training or other transitions to self-sufficiency.
At the Tennessee family law firm of the Law Office of Lisa Collins Werner, our legal team assists you with obtaining the spousal support you are entitled to. In addition, we thoroughly explain the process so you can understand what your rights are relating to spousal support.
Treat Your Divorce Like The Major Life Event It Is
As an experienced Knoxville attorney, Lisa Collins Werner has worked not only with people who are filing for divorce, but also with those who are dissatisfied with their divorce decrees. Because a divorce is a traumatic event for many people, the temptation is often to sign a divorce decree without really understanding what is in it, just for the sake of being done with the process.
While some post-divorce modifications are possible, if you decline spousal support at first, you will not have a chance to receive it later on.
