How The Divorce Process Works

We begin the dissolution process by filing for divorce by petition with the state. Your case will then be designated to a court within your county. While the divorce is pending, temporary orders will outline what each party can and cannot do. You may need a temporary restraining order or additional parameters around who will move out, who will have custody of the children during proceedings, and other details.

Your divorce lawyer will then gather information as part of the discovery process, including financial documents, an inventory of assets, and other relevant materials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Spousal support can’t be determined with a straightforward formula. That’s why you need an alimony attorney who will make thoughtful arguments on your behalf, to find the best outcomes for you and your family. Griffith Law Firm frequently encounters these questions when consulting with clients:

Am I eligible to receive alimony?

There are a few specifics that will determine if you’re eligible for alimony, including:

  • You are legally a spouse
  • You cannot provide for reasonable needs
  • You meet one of the following requirements:
  • Married for 10+ years and the spouse seeking alimony cannot support themselves
  • The opposing spouse has been convicted of family violence within 2 years of the filing
  • You are unable to support yourself due to an incapacitating mental or physical disability
  • You are unable to support yourself due to acting as the caretaker for a disabled child of the marriage


HOW LONG WILL ALIMONY BE PAID?

The length of alimony payments depends on the length of the marriage.

  • If you have been married for 10-20 years, alimony will be paid for no more than 5 years.
  • If you have been married for 20-30 years, alimony will be paid for no more than 7 years.
  • If you have been married for  30+ years, alimony will be paid for no more than 10 years.

CAN I ASK FOR SPOUSAL SUPPORT BEFORE THE DIVORCE IS FINAL?

Yes. Temporary support can be granted to one party, however, it may be in the form of one party continuing to make payments on a vehicle or residence of the other party. This could also be in the form of a monetary monthly payment.
