Hartford Spousal Support Lawyer
In Connecticut, the courts generally award spousal support, or alimony, in marriages that are five or more years long. In addition to the length of the marriage, other factors used to determine spousal support include:
- A disproportionate difference in income
- The health of both parties
- Whether one spouse is caring for children and cannot work
- Degree of fault of either party (although Connecticut is a no-fault divorce state, this can still be taken into account for spousal support considerations)
At The O’Neil Law Firm, P.C., we represent clients for a wide range of issues during a divorce, including for spousal support matters. Whether you are seeking support or are being asked to pay it, Patricia O’Neil, our experienced divorce lawyer, will meet with you to fully understand your situation and advise on possible next steps.

New Britain Alimony Attorney
Permanent alimony is sometimes rewarded for marriages that lasted more than 25 years. Eligibility still depends on the set of factors listed above, and support arrangements are always modifiable unless the parties have restricted against it. All types of spousal support typically stop upon remarriage of the receiving party.
At our law firm, we understand and keep up to date with the laws and procedures associated with the establishment or modification of spousal support. Our goal is to help you find the best possible solution to suit your needs, whether through mediation, a negotiated settlement or in the courtroom.
