Marriage is more than a spiritual union in the eyes of the law; it is a partnership that requires sacrifices and compromises. The courts understand that contributions to a household do not just come in the form of the income each partner brings in. Alimony is the court's way of taking the contributions of each partner into account, in whatever form those contributions came, and giving them financial value to ensure there is equitability in the division of assets.
For many people, nothing proves more difficult during the breaking up of a relationship than determining how to best handle child custody and support. Decisions made during the process of coming to an agreement can affect your children for the remainder of their youths, and well into their futures. Mary Beth Ayvazian understands that determining child custody, and coming to an agreement on child support, is about far more than winning in the courtroom. It is about your child's health, happiness, and wellbeing.
