Child Support and Spousal Support

Child Support in Connecticut When you are going through a divorce, no doubt you will have many questions. You may wonder how you will get by without your spouse's income. You may be concerned about finding a job, or how you will continue paying for your children's many expenses.

At Ormond Romano we understand and appreciate your financial concerns. We can help you reach a child support order or spousal support (alimony) agreement that meets your needs and protects the best interests of your children. Contact us to learn more during an initial consultation.

Helping Secure a Fair Child Support Agreement
Child support ensures the continuing financial security of the children of divorcing or separating parents. A set of guidelines established by the state of Connecticut is used to calculate a child support amount. However, the court may also consider other factors when determining child support, including the health of the child, the number of children involved, each parent's income and whether the parent has remarried.

Collection of Spousal Support
Spousal support or alimony is awarded so that a spouse can maintain the standard of living to which he or she has grown accustomed during the marriage. This is usually an extremely important issue in marriages where one spouse was the sole or primary income earner, where there are significant assets and/or where the couple has been married for several years. In order to determine whether spousal support is a viable option in your divorce situation, we ask the following questions:
    » How long has the couple been married?
    » What is the earning capacity of each spouse?
    » Are both parties in good health?
    » Has one spouse paid for schooling, career education or made other sacrifices to benefit the other spouse?
    » How has each spouse contributed to the marriage?

If you decide to pursue spousal support, we will help determine how much alimony is necessary and the duration it should be collected. Rehabilitative alimony is designed to help the nonworking spouse get back on his or her feet financially. Alimony pendente lite (or temporary spousal support) grants alimony to a spouse while the divorce is pending.

We know what steps to take and what arguments to make in order to best serve our clients' interests. If you or someone you know is in need of our services, please do not hesitate to contact us to set up an appointment. We will provide you with a detailed evaluation at no cost to you. Our office is open evenings and weekends by appointment and we accept all major credit cards - MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.
