Will I Have to Pay Alimony?
In determining whether one of the parties is required to pay spousal support, and how much, the judge will consider such factors as:
- How long the couple has been married
- The income each spouse can earn independently
- The standard of living established during the marriage
- The financial need of the less-moneyed spouse
- Ability of supporting spouse to pay alimony
- Age and health of both parties
Other factors may also be considered and temporary spousal support may also be ordered while the divorce is in process. But even long-term alimony does not last forever.
At some point parties receiving support are expected to support themselves. The judge will determine the duration of support based on the amount of training and education the recipient requires in order to support herself or himself.
