How Are Alimony Payments Determined?

Everyone's situation is unique which is why a wide variety of factors may be used to come to a determination regarding spousal support. Some of the things the court may consider include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age
  • Lifestyle
  • Earning potential
  • Ability of one spouse to pay
  • Sacrifices made to benefit the other spouse

The court can be very flexible when it comes to making a support determination. In rare cases, the court may even order permanent support. However, payments are usually set for a fixed amount of time and may even be modified if one of the parties experiences a substantial change in circumstances. Whether you are seeking support or are being requested to make payments, you can rest assured that we will serve as your staunch advocates to help ensure that your interests are protected.
