Alimony & Spousal Support

Alimony & Spousal Support

Can I Get Alimony?

Alimony and Spousal Support is one of the most contested and challenged areas of the dissolution of a marriage. There are no alimony guidelines and it is difficult to predict what a judge will grant.

Different factors are considered by the court when determining spousal support. Some of these factors include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Lifestlye during the marriage
  • The ability of one spouse to pay vs. the needs of the other spouse
  • Current employment or employment ability
  • The marital assets and how they are divided

There are many other factors that will factor into a judge’s decision for awarding alimony and the amount awarded. Because there are no specific guidelines governing these decisions, it is always in your best interest to consult an experienced divorce attorney.
