Leaders in the community provide Huntsville families with aggressive spousal support representation

Divorce is one of the most difficult issues that one can face. Having represented many Alabama families in these emotional cases, we understand what a traumatic experience it can be for the entire family. The attorneys at Watson McKinney, LLP are proud to be members of North Alabama’s most respected family law firms. Helping you through this taxing period is our priority. We also have an eye on your future and helping you attain a healthy post-divorce environment.

In working towards these goals, there are a number of tools that our experienced divorce team has at its disposal, including supposal support, also known as alimony. Backed by more than 15 years of litigation experience, our lead family law attorney, Rebekah McKinney, navigates you through the process of obtaining spousal support and beginning fresh.  

Understanding spousal support and crafting a successful petition to the court  

At its core, Alabama’s spousal support laws are designed to place spouses on a more equal footing after divorce. Courts do not, however, automatically award spousal support. Even when requested, a court may deny the request after taking into account a number of factors and conditions. Generally speaking, if you do not request spousal support during your divorce you cannot then go back and do so, making it very important to get it right the first time. Having successfully represented male and female clients in spousal support actions across North Alabama, Watson McKinney, LLP has earned a reputation for results.

How do I know if I am eligible to receive spousal support?

An experienced divorce attorney can walk you through the issues that courts consider in requests for spousal support:

  • Assets of both spousesIncome of both spouses

  • Earning potential of both spouses

  • Pension, 401(k) or other retirement benefits

  • Misconduct on the part of either spouse

Attorney Rebekah McKinney helps you navigate this process, to ensure that the transition into post-divorce life does not impact your well-being.
