Temporary Spousal Support
Temporary spousal support is awarded during a divorce and continues until your divorce is finalized. Courts often rely on a computer program to determine the amount of temporary spousal support a spouse will pay.
Permanent spousal support is awarded to a spouse after their divorce has been finalized for the supported spouse to have additional income until they are able to attain the marital standard of living.
Factors Used to Determine Spousal Support
- The earning capacity of both parties to maintain the standard of living established during the marriage;
- The marketable skills of the party to be supported and their ability to engage in gainful employment considering any care for dependent children.
- The extent of time the supported devoted to domestic duties.
- The extent to which one party contributed to the other party’s attainment of an education or training.
- The obligations and assets of both parties.
- The duration of the marriage.
- The age and health of the parties.
- Evidence of any history of domestic violence or criminal convictions.
- Any hardships affecting either party.
