How is Spousal Support Determined?
Although spousal support may be established based upon an out of court agreement or settlement, there are particular factors that will come into play when the court is involved. In a contested divorce, spousal support may be awarded to either the husband or wife, depending on the particular circumstances. It may be awarded on a temporary or permanent basis. To determine what amount of spousal support should be paid, and by which spouse, the court may look to the following factors:
- The length of the marriage
- Each spouse's financial situation
- Each spouse's earning capacity
- The standard of living spouses enjoyed during the marriage
- Each spouse's contributions to the marriage
- The age and health of each spouse
