Welcome to our Alaska law firm's webpage on Alimony. At Shortell Law LLC, we understand that divorce can be a challenging and emotional process. Our experienced attorneys are here to provide compassionate guidance and professional representation when it comes to the complex issue of alimony.

What is Alimony?

Alimony, also known as spousal support or maintenance, is a legal obligation for one spouse to provide financial support to the other spouse during or after a divorce. The purpose of alimony is to help the receiving spouse maintain a similar standard of living that was enjoyed during the marriage, especially if there is a significant disparity in income or earning potential between the spouses.  Learn more about alimony by reading our blog posts:

How Our Firm Can Help:


Alimony Evaluation

Our attorneys will carefully evaluate your unique situation, taking into consideration factors such as the length of the marriage, the financial resources of each spouse, and the ability to earn income. We will assess whether alimony may be appropriate in your case and the potential amount and duration of support.

Negotiation and Settlement

We believe in finding amicable solutions whenever possible. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who will work diligently to reach a fair and equitable alimony agreement through mediation or collaborative law. We will protect your interests and strive for a resolution that meets your needs.

Alimony Modification

Circumstances may change after a divorce, making it necessary to modify the alimony arrangement. If you are facing a significant change in income, job loss, or other substantial life changes, our attorneys can help you seek a modification of alimony to reflect your current situation.

Enforcement of Alimony Orders

If your former spouse fails to comply with the alimony order, our attorneys will advocate for your rights and pursue enforcement actions to ensure that you receive the support you are entitled to. We will explore all legal avenues available to enforce the alimony order and protect your financial interests.

Alimony is just one aspect of a divorce. Our firm offers comprehensive divorce representation, addressing all issues related to property division, child custody, child support, and more. We will work tirelessly to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
