Alimony is often one of the most volatile topics of discussion during divorce proceedings. Neither party wants to find themselves in a position where they are unable to fulfill their financial obligations or maintain a decent standard of living, so both parties will often do whatever they can to tip the odds in their own favor. In the same way that there is an exact formula that courts can use when awarding child support in a divorce, there is no exact formula courts use when calculating and awarding alimony.

Factors which can affect how alimony will be calculated in your divorce are:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The age and health of each spouse
  • The income of each spouse
  • Each spouse's education level
  • Each spouse' earning capacity
  • Expenses involved in raising children from the marriage
  • Which spouse will retain what property
  • Standard of living during the course of the marriage

Both the husband's and wife's expenses, income and other items will be considered before ultimately determining the alimony amount. Hiring a affordable, aggressive divorce lawyer from our firm to represent you during divorce proceedings will give you a much greater chance of being able to argue your case so that you are able to attain the fair and just alimony settlement you seek.
