I Stayed Home, What Are My Options For Support?
In many marriages, it makes sense for one spouse to stay home to raise the children and take care of the household while the other spouse works as the primary breadwinner. While this arrangement is often the best fit for the family during the marriage, it can put the stay-at-home parent at a serious disadvantage during and after divorce.
At our law offices, many clients come to us worried about what the future will hold for them as they have been out of the workforce for years, if not decades. We offer the representation and resources they need to start the next chapters of their lives on the best financial footing possible, with eyes open to the possibilities ahead.
