Factors In Determining Alimony
Alimony payments will depend on a variety of factors. One of the primary factors is the length of the marriage. Alimony will rarely be an issue when a short-term marriage comes to an end. In cases involving long-term marriages, alimony is much more likely.
Another important factor is the income and financial resources of each spouse. If both spouses are making roughly the same amount of money and have similar financial resources, it is unlikely that one will have to make alimony payments to the other. However, if one spouse did not pursue a career and instead stayed home to raise the children, and does not have the same income or earning capacity as the spouse who continued to work, that spouse will most likely be awarded spousal support.
Our lawyers will review all of the factors to help you determine whether you will be required to make or receive alimony payments. We will take care to ensure that everything is looked at closely, and that the calculations are sound in order to ensure fairness.
