Alimony/Maintenance

Maintenance is based upon a party’s inability to support him or herself through appropriate employment and the disparity of income between the parties. The law is gender neutral, and the attorneys at Bloch & Chapleau have successfully obtained and defended maintenance awards for their clients. Bloch and Chapleau has worked very hard at obtaining maintenance orders which are fair, of reasonable duration and which impose on the recipient spouse a duty to improve their income abilities.


Thank you for the thorough and kind consultation you afforded me regarding my possible modification of maintenance. After my ex spoke with his attorney, he backed off completely and has decided (at least, so he says for now) to leave everything along/as is. I never would have had the confidence to confront him if not for our meeting.
