Spousal Support

About Spousal Support

Spousal support is the court-ordered financial support of a spouse or ex-spouse. It is also commonly referred to as maintenance or alimony. Spousal support allows the dependent spouse to receive payments for his or her day-to-day necessities, such as food, clothing, shelter, and health insurance. An attorney can evaluate each individual situation, address the issue of spousal support, and protect your interests in resolving this crucial aspect of divorce.

What Does a Court Consider for Spousal Support?

When a person decides to seek spousal support from the former spouse, the court will consider a variety of factors before awarding support.

  • Some of these factors include:
  • Each spouse's income
  • The earning capacity of the dependent spouse
  • The dependent spouse's prior education and employment ability
  • The ability of the independent spouse to pay support
  • The established way of living throughout the marriage
  • The assets and separate property of each spouse
  • The age of each spouse
  • The health of each spouse
  • Any abuse that occurred throughout the marriage

Once the court carefully reviews these factors, temporary or long-term spousal support may be awarded to the dependent spouse. The duration and amount of the spousal support will be determined by the court and will be in accordance with formulas that are in use in determining spousal support amounts.
