Spousal Support is either agreed upon by the parties or determined by the judge in a contested hearing.  We cannot give legal advice regarding spousal support but will include your request for support in the documents.

There is no set calculations for spousal support like there is for child support.  If you and your spouse cannot agree on an amount for spousal support, the amount will be determined by the Judge based on many factors, including some of the following:

1.    Length of marriage

2.    Standard of living prior to divorce.

3.    Ability for both parties to get employment.

4.    Retraining in the workforce

5.    Disabilities

and other factors.
