How Do Judges Determine Alimony?

Family law courts do not use a one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to issuing alimony orders. Instead, the judge will consider a variety of factors related to your marriage and financial situation. Some of the biggest criteria that could impact alimony include:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • Each spouse’s income and separate assets
  • Each spouse’s contribution to the household
  • Whether one spouse supported the other financially during the marriage
  • The length of time and amount of money necessary before the dependent spouse can become self-sufficient

As you can see, the court has a wide breadth of discretion when it comes to issuing a decision. We will present your side to the judge in a persuasive light, whether you wish to receive long-term alimony, limit the amount you have to pay or modify an existing decree.
