Do I need to go to court for my divorce?
Depending on how well you communicate with your spouse, going to court isn’t always necessary. Mediation is often quicker and more cost-effective options for those going through a divorce who feel that they can handle their issues without getting a judge involved. In mediation, you can seek advice from your attorney before going into the hearing. A mediator will then write up your agreement.
How can I prove I need alimony?
Often, when you go through a divorce, your finances pay the ultimate price. If your spouse was the sole breadwinner in the family, and you have no way to make a suitable income to support yourself without them, you may be able to file an order for alimony or spousal support.
You’ll need to prove your need for alimony by showing that your financial standing is much less than your spouse’s and proving that, for whatever reason, you cannot obtain a job and make a suitable income in the future.
