Helping Clients Receive The Spousal Support They Deserve
As a team, spouses rely on each other to make sacrifices for the good of the family. During divorce, these sacrifices can create financial problems for spouses who put their careers on hold to raise children and take on other unpaid duties.
Ohio judges use their discretion when awarding spousal support. At Kemp Law Group, we create compelling arguments in court to help our clients receive the financial settlement and security that they deserve. We have over 20 years’ experience protecting our clients’ interests at every stage in the divorce process.

Important Factors To Understand About Spousal Support
Commonly known as “alimony,” spousal support may be awarded to a party based upon several factors. Unlike child support payments, it is not mandatory, nor are there formal calculations used to determine the amount awarded, although there are tools to assist in the assessment of the potential amount.
Our managing attorney, Jacqueline Kemp, builds strong cases for central Ohio clients who seek temporary or permanent spousal support. She utilizes the statutory factors to establish her clients’ financial needs, including, but not limited to:
- Years married
- Standard of living established in marriage
- Work history of spouse seeking support
- Training or educated necessary to update job skills
- Medical considerations that may limit the spouse’s ability to become financially independent
We work alongside forensic accounts to verify the true income of both spouses and use their assessment to assist in determining a fair amount based on that income. Vocational experts help us establish earning capacity for the spouse seeking support as well as the spouse paying support using the spouse’s skill set and employment history.
All members on our team strive to secure favorable terms that allow our clients to find success after their divorce.
