Spousal support provides spouses financial stability as they navigate divorce. While laws vary by state, spousal support is typically required when one spouse makes substantially more money than the other.
How long do I have to pay spousal support?
If you are ordered to pay spousal support, your payment duration can be determined by a number of different factors. For example, if your former spouse remarries or your children no longer need a full-time adult at home, a judge may determine you are no longer required to contribute spousal support.
How do I know if I qualify for spousal support?
The answer varies on a case by case basis. A judge will assess the issue by looking at several factors including: your capacity to earn, the duration of your marriage, and your standard of living during your marriage.
What happens if my spouse won’t pay spousal support?
If your spouse refuses to pay required spousal support payments, you should take immediate legal action.
