Mediation is most commonly known to resolve child custody or asset division issues, but there are many other problems for which mediation can work. One of these is alimony.
Alimony in Martin County is becoming less common, but it still comes up in many divorce negotiations. If you and your spouse have similar incomes you won’t have to pay alimony, but if there’s a spouse with considerably less income and your marriage has lasted more than ten years, then it’s very likely that the spouse that earns more will have to pay alimony.
While there are some people who go to court to settle alimony, this means having to go through the expenses of time and money of a trial. Mediation has emerged as an alternative where both parties have more control of the situation and its outcome.
When two spouses seek mediation for alimony in Martin County, they will be able to measure more factors than just the income of each of the parties, factors like the needs of each spouse and their families, the likeliness of the spouse with less income of ever reaching the same standard of living that they had during marriage, and what each spouse is willing to accept or compromise.
If you believe you will need to pay or receive alimony in Martin County, you can contact a mediator who will stand as a neutral party between you and your spouse, in order for you to discuss the issues at hand.
