Are You Or Your Ex Entitled to Alimony?

Depending on your situation, spousal maintenance may be necessary. A judge will look at a number of factors when making this decision. How long the couple was married, the earning capacity of each spouse and their standard of living are among the most important. How long payments will last depends on the length of the marriage. In general, the court will say one year of alimony is paid for every three years of marriage. That being said, it is unique to your case and can be altered or changed.

How Will Child Support Be Determined?

Child support is another area of the law that can be quite complex. Making sure your child is financially secure is something both parents should want. Again, the court will look at your specific circumstances. Where the child will primarily live and go to school and the child’s age are common factors the court will take into consideration. It also heavily depends on each parent and their earning capacity. The goal is to make sure the child’s lifestyle can be maintained at both homes. As time goes on, this can also be modified.
