Although alimony serves a necessary function for taking care of former spouses, disagreements over terms and settlements can render it less effective. Some disputes even delay other proceedings when they are not managed correctly, and those who fail to satisfy court alimony terms may be subjected to punitive measures, such as wage garnishment. At the Law Offices of James A Cuddy, LLC., we work hard to change the way Connecticut spouses feel about their alimony arrangements by helping them resolve disputes and identify workable agreement solutions.
As residents of Connecticut who are contemplating divorce may know, some former spouses may receive alimony that is either awarded by the court or agreed to by the spouses. The reason for alimony is to allow the lower-earning spouse or one who has not been employed during the marriage to maintain his or her standard of living and improve job skills so they may become self-supporting.
