ALIMONY: THE MOST CONTESTED DIVORCE ISSUE

Alimony is often the most contested issue in a divorce. Unlike child support which is generally determined by a formula, there is no specific formula to determine an alimony award or obligation. There are several factors that Courts consider that include, but are not limited to:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Age and health of the litigants
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Earning capacity of each litigant

The Law Offices of Hoffman DiMuzio understands that an alimony award or obligation is a significant financial issue for almost all clients. However, because each case is unique, the facts and circumstances of your case can significantly impact how we approach your case.

Our attorneys advocate for clients, regardless of whether they need to obtain financial support or are seeking to limit their financial obligations.

SECURING EFFECTIVE AND REASONSABLE CHILD CUSTODY & SUPPORT

With the dissolution of any marriage involving children, issues related to custody are typically at the forefront. The child custody lawyers of Hoffman DiMuzio will insure that a fair parenting plan, which addresses both physical and legal custody, is reached in the child’s best interest.

Our attorneys routinely handle child custody cases and can help to determine the best custody arrangement for you and your children. For more information, please visit our Child Custody & Support page. 

POST-JUDGMENT MODIFICATIONS REQUIRE A WELL-PRACTICED ATTORNEY

Frequently, the terms of a Final Judgment of Divorce, or prior Court Order in non-divorce cases, no longer accommodate a litigant’s or family’s needs. A change in circumstances may require that the terms of a judgment or order be changed. The change may be the result of an involuntary loss of income or a modification of a prior parenting plan.

Post-judgment applications may include the enforcement of prior provisions of judgments or court orders that a litigant is not adhering to. Oftentimes, applications of this nature may result in sanctions being imposed upon the non-compliant party that could include counsel fees. The requirements for post-judgment applications are defined by Court Order.

If the application that you file does not comply with the family rules or is insufficient to meet your burden, you will not have the opportunity to correct the application’s shortcomings the day of Court and the application will likely be dismissed and your efforts lost.

For these reasons, it may be in your best interest to seek the knowledge and guidance of an experienced attorney. The divorce attorneys at Hoffman DiMuzio have over 25 years of experience advocating on behalf of clients throughout the Delaware Valley.
