Assisting Clients Throughout Arizona With Spousal Support
Spousal maintenance, formerly known as alimony or spousal support, is one of the grayest areas of family law. There is no set formula for the courts to follow, only a list of statutory factors that the judge will analyze when making his or her determination. These factors include:
- Duration of the marriage
- Earning ability, age and employment history of each spouse
- Standard of living established
- Financial resources of each spouse
- Future educational costs of raising children
- Any fraudulent behavior impairing the value of property
- Health insurance costs
Since the calculation of spousal maintenance can depend on many factors, it is critical to have a lawyer in your corner who can best present your case and specific situation to the court. This way, your rights will be safeguarded.
How Long Will Spousal Maintenance Last?
The court will analyze the above factors, as well as certain others, to come to a determination on how long your spousal maintenance entitlement or obligation will last. At our law firm, we can work with you to explain how each and every factor could affect your support award and your future.
