What factors are considered in alimony?

Courts will look into both spouses' means of living and income to determine if they can support themselves once a marriage ends. There are several factors that are looked at in order to decide on the proper needs and support.

Some of the elements that are considered include the following:

  • Length of marriage
  • Physical and mental abilities of each spouse
  • Parental responsibilities
  • Income or potential income of each spouse
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • If a spouse will need continued education to obtain a job

An alimony order will last however long it requires for the spouse to gain the necessarily means to support themselves individually. Typically, the judge who orders the alimony order will set an end date based on the various considerations. Alimony orders can also be modified if considerable change has occurred, altering the ability to pay or receive spousal support.
