How Do I Calculate Alimony In A Divorce?
Alimony, also called spousal support, is calculated based on the individual circumstances of a situation. Alimony is often given to the spouse who earns less for a specific time period so he or she can adjust to the reality of the new living situation. However, in some cases, lifetime alimony can be awarded.
Our Dothan alimony lawyers will use an alimony calculator to help determine if one spouse is obligated to pay support and help explain how the judge is likely to rule in ordering support payments. The factors commonly used may include:
- Each party’s health
- Income prospects for each party
- Need and ability to pay support
- Length of the marriage
We will also explain how other situations such as child custody can affect spousal support, as well as child support.
