Primary Factors in Determining Spousal Support
There are a number of factors that should are considered in the process of determining the amount of a spousal support award.

- Length of the relationship
- The age of the spouses
- The income of each party
- The earning capacity of the spouses
- The needs of the spouses
- The ability to provide support
- The number of children
- The care of the children
- Each spouse’s contributions to the relationship
- The roles of each spouse during the relationship
- The standard of living established during the relationship
- Ability of a spouse to become self-supporting

Alimony & The Financial Impact of Divorce
The financial impact of divorce can be minimal to substantial. And affluent spouses risk losing more in a divorce. Increasingly, women are paying spousal support and/or child support to their ex-husbands especially when the wife is the primary breadwinner in the house. There are many factors that can affect the type and amount of alimony you may be eligible to receive or be required to pay. And when amounts are contested, things can get complicated quickly. Therefore, it’s important to work with the right law firm who has navigated these waters many times to ensure you get a fair result.
