Spousal support, or alimony, can be an extremely contentious element to any divorce. This can be especially true when there is dramatic disparity between each spouse's income and earning potential. If one spouse is earning an exceptional income, one side can end up feeling taken advantage of and the other can end up feeling abandoned.
Given the high emotions that can be generated by the question of spousal support, it is especially important for entertainment professionals and their spouses to secure the representation of attorneys who are skilled in dealing with the economic factors that are associated with a successful career in entertainment such as:
- Substantial income
- Income from multiple streams
- Deferred income
- Income from intellectual property that may have been created partially during the marriage and partially before the marriage
When a particular project has been completed during the marriage, but no income has been realized from it until after the divorce, how do you characterize that piece of intellectual property and the income it generates? There are many complex questions that surround the determination of spousal support in these situations. Experience is the key to successfully securing a spousal support arrangement that fully comprehends your situation.
