Spousal support — also known as alimony — is a highly-contested financial issue that many spouses face in a divorce. An alimony award is often warranted in cases in which one spouse was the household's primary source of income, meaning the other spouse stands to take a significant financial blow after a divorce.
The exact amount of the obligation will depend on many factors, including the length of the marriage and your joint standard of living as key considerations. Spousal support is intended to provide a lower-income spouse with assistance to maintain financial stability.
In cases of temporary spousal support, the family court makes specific calculations based on the net income of the supportive spouse. The courts work to ensure that one spouse is not forced to pay too much or too little. Don't risk negotiating spousal support without professional guidance. At Ross Family Law, we are skilled at pursuing and opposing requests for alimony.
