Aggressive Yet Compassionate Representation

He truly values the attorney-client relationship and wants to make sure you feel comfortable moving forward. Furthermore, he brings logic and reasoning to every issue. These are especially important when it comes to spousal support. People are very protective over their money, which makes splitting their finances difficult. That is where Preston can step in and help.
Determining spousal maintenance can get especially contentious. The court considers several factors when determining the amount spousal maintenance the lesser-earning spouse will receive. After looking at tax returns, pay stubs and the financial earning capacity of each party, both sides are able to speak. The judge will then decide what will be a fair amount. Preston sees many cases where one spouse earns a significant amount more than the other spouse. In these situations, the court will likely set the amount that is owed for a specific period of time. It’s also possible the judge may rule the payments as ongoing, indefinitely.
