Oftentimes people spend a lot of resources and money fighting on property issues, but they make no significant efforts to fight spousal support. They take it for granted that they will have to pay alimony and they think they don’t really have options to fight this.
Many attorneys are not familiar with the cases in this area of law, and many attorneys just don’t want to fight for you! It’s easier for your lawyer to settle the case than to go to the trouble of taking your case to trial, and it takes a lot of preparation to properly present spousal support issues.

Now Is the Time To Fight Spousal Support
There are many techniques that I have developed to reduce and or obviate the payment of long-term alimony! Do the math. If you are ordered to pay $1,500 per month that amounts to $360,000 over a 20 year period!! Spousal support will certainly be one of the largest financial issues in your case!
If you can even reduce the amount by $500 now and do nothing else this would amount to saving $120,000 over the same twenty years. However, there are many strategies that have been developed that will likely not only reduce your current obligation but also ensure that alimony is terminated much sooner, likely resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings.
