Getting a divorce from your spouse can be quite stressful in a number of ways, especially if you were financially dependent to some degree. You may be wondering whether or not you will be getting spousal support after the divorce is finalized. Speaking with a divorce attorney in Morris County from O'Sullivan Law Group is in your best interest, as there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of whether alimony will be ordered in any given case.
