Spousal Support

Also sometimes referred to as alimony or spousal maintenance, spousal support is the money that is paid by one spouse to support the other. The support is intended to allow the spouse to continue the lifestyle he or she lived during the marriage as well as support all daily requirements. Not all divorces involve spousal support, but many do. The courts will consider a number of factors when awarding spousal support and we will assist you in developing the evidence you need to support your case.

We represent clients on either side of a spousal support matter, whether they are seeking it or attempting to prevent the awarding of spousal support. Regardless of the side of the case we are on, we stand up for our clients' rights and take the time to advise them of the potential impact any court decisions may have on their lives.

Property Division in Divorce

The division of marital assets is an essential part of the divorce process. Since Mississippi is not a community property state, assets and property are divided according to the law of equitable distribution. This means that everything is divided equally and fairly, but not necessarily 50-50 between the parties. Our lawyers and firm can advise you on how the laws may affect your specific situation. We will help you understand the types of property and assets that are subject to division, such as:

  • Homes
  • Personal property
  • Real estate
  • Bank accounts and other accounts
  • 401(k)s, IRAs and other retirement and investment accounts
  • Pensions and stock options

It is important to note that marital debt is also divided in an equitable manner. We will strive to keep you from getting stuck with debt that didn't contribute to the marriage.
