I have had past experiences with lawyers, they were too busy to answer phone calls but quick to bill. Chris Nesi was different. He was amazing. He was kind, knowing our case very well, and really cared about our family. Chris Nesi was so wonderful, that i can not find the words to express what a great job he did for us.

Summer T, Child Custody client

This is my first experience with an attorney. I had seen Mr. Nesi in court representing another client. The representation was so great that I left the court room to get his business card, I called him the same day. Chris Nesi is currently representing me and I am thrilled. Chris Nesi is tremendous at what he does.

Nicholas S, Child Custody client

Mr. Nesi was able to achieve everything I asked of him. He was professional and an outstanding lawyer. I recommend Mr. Nesi to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

Lisa, Divorce client

I have been through many lawyers in my quest for custody of my children. Chris Nesi is the first lawyer that gave me his cell phone number and actually called me back on the weekends - regardless of the time. Usually, I would wait days for a lawyer to call me back. That's not all, when we got to court, Chris mopped the floor with my ex's attorney!!! I now have sole custody of my children and I am receiving more child support than I expected! I would recommend Chris Nesi to anyone who wants a lawyer who will fight for them and your kids!!! Thanks a million Chris.

Michigan Spousal Support/Alimony Attorney

Spousal Support/Alimony

In Michigan, Spousal Support, (also commonly called Alimony) is court ordered financial payments to a current or former spouse in divorce proceedings. Once only given to the wife or ex wife, Michigan's adoption of the No-Fault Divorce has made Alimony/Spousal Support statutes gender neutral.

How is Spousal Support/Alimony Calculated?

There is no established formula for awarding Alimony or Spousal Support in Michigan. The court will instead consider several factors and weigh each accordingly.

How is Spousal Support/Alimony Awarded?

Alimony or Spousal Support can be awarded one of two ways; either in a fixed amount (awarded in gross) or in a modifiable method that can change by term and amount that is awarded at intervals decided by the court. Both Spousal Support Award methods have inherent strengths and weaknesses. Our attorneys are fully aware of this and work to turn these strengths and weaknesses to your advantage when decisions are being made regarding how much Spousal Support you will be required to pay.

Purpose of Spousal Support

The purpose of Spousal Support laws are two fold. These laws help to ensure the financial stability of one of the parties in a divorce as they may have been homemakers or were earning significantly less than the other party. These laws also seek to establish a fair environment after the marriage by balancing the income and needs of the parties in a way that would not penalize them for the break up of the marriage.
