Wise Counsel For Spousal Maintenance Matters
The determination of an appropriate spousal maintenance arrangement can be the source of additional conflict. At Bryant & Bleier, LLP, we want to make the divorce process as straightforward and advantageous to your situation as possible. Our attorneys will advise you on strategy and approaches based on your situation.
Factors In Spousal Maintenance Determination
Factors that the court uses to determine spousal maintenance include:
- The length of the marriage
- The incomes and earning potential of both spouses
- Children from the marriage, the custodial parent and child support
- Age and health of each spouse
- Time and effort for education to attain a self-supporting career
Our goal is to use this information decisively so that negotiation can efficiently move to an agreement that is fair to both parties.
It is common for there to be an order for temporary spousal support while the divorce is in progress. This is to provide adequate resources, while the divorce gets finalized. When there is a final judgment, there will be a new agreement that will stipulate the amount of spousal maintenance and the length of time it is paid to the ex-spouse.
