Home - Alimony


If you are wondering and have several questions about how a lawyer can help with your alimony or spousal support situation, you are in the right place.

At the Law Office of Mary Jo Pothier, I can help you with spousal support, also known as alimony, by establishing, enforcing, and changing spousal support payments. A spouse has a fundamental right to receive financial support, commonly based on a formula that factors in the partner’s income and the presence or absence of a prenuptial agreement.

Courts take spousal support allowances seriously, and a partner’s failure to pay an alimony obligation can result in harsh effects. For example, if you stop paying spousal support or pay less than what your court order requires, a judge could slash your wages, withdraw your professional license or driver’s license, or even order you to spend some time in jail. Hence, when you are ordered by a court to pay alimony, you need to pay it unless you can show a compelling reason not to.

I am experienced in family-related issues, such as divorce, family law, and mediation. Spousal support modifications generally need a court hearing in front of a judge. At the Law Office of Mary Jo Pothier I will help you prepare for the hearing, collate vital evidence, and present your case in court.
