Spousal Support

In awarding spousal support a court will generally consider such factors as:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The needs of each party
  • The financial resources and liabilities of each party
  • The impact on the children of having the care-giving spouse working
  • The contribution of each party to domestic duties and the education and career building of the other party
  • Any tax consequences
  • All sources of income available to either party

A court can order temporary spousal support while the divorce is pending. Most spousal support is ordered for a specific length of time. Once ordered, it can be modified only upon a showing of a ” change in circumstances.”
