Law Office of Michael Ephraim – Virginia Beach Divorce Lawyer and Spousal Support Lawyer

Spousal support (also called alimony) can be awarded when one spouse earns significantly more than the other or other special factors exist. An example would be when one parent stays home to care for children in lieu of a career outside the home.

If you need help understanding whether you can get financial spousal support (alimony) in Virginia Beach Virginia, Law Office of Michael Ephraim can provide that help. 

The person requesting spousal support should be able to demonstrate why he/she needs spousal support. If the parties are in disagreement on spousal support, a judge can determine if spousal support is appropriate in their situation.

Once you agree or the court orders spousal support, it is binding. 

The court usually considers the following factors when granting spousal support: the spouses’ present and future earnings and their earning abilities; their health, and age; their efforts to become self-supporting; length of the marriage; their reasonable needs, including life and health insurance; their standard of living during the marriage; and their property and debt settlement as part of their divorce or legal separation.

Spousal support (or alimony) often goes hand-in-hand with child support matters.  Rest assured that Law Office of Michael Ephraim also provides child support lawyer services as well as child custody lawyer services and all other family law services.

4 Ways 1-800-DIVORCE Finds You the Best Divorce Lawyer in Virginia Beach

Reduces the Clutter of Lawyers

Google My Business lists 112 Virginia Beach divorce lawyers. Avvo lists 60.  Yelp has 82.So how does that help you? You spin the roulette wheel on Google/Bing. Then you have to spin the same wheel again on one of those lawyer-finder platforms!

Avoids Jack-of-all-Trades Lawyers

The majority of Virginia Beach lawyers will have ONLY a “jack-of-all-trades” website. On that site, they list divorce, drunk driving, estate planning, bankruptcy, criminal defense, personal injury and anything else they think will eventually make them a buck. “Hey, we do a little bit of everything, you know?”

Avoids Expensive Pay-Per-Click Lawyers

Many divorce attorneys in Virginia Beach pay Avvo, Google, Yelp, Legal Zoom and many other lead-gen platforms to rank their paid ads higher in searches. They all bid up the cost of getting your case. That means whenever you hire one of those divorce attorneys, you pay Avvo’s or Google’s fee. The divorce attorney doesn’t pay that cost. YOU PAY IT IN HIGHER FEES !!

Allows You To Play the Referral Game

Divorce referrals are good for everyone. The friend or colleague getting your referral has a good idea about how a lawyer will perform from someone who already knows. You get the satisfaction of helping a friend in need. And referral business is GOLD to divorce lawyers. It is the business they don't pay anything to get. But they have to do a good job to get their former client's referral business. And those former clients must have a way to get their referrals to the lawyer.
