  An important issue in any divorce is whether, and for how long, one spouse shall be required to make support payments to the other spouse after termination of their marriage.

  Spousal support is a complex issue which requires experienced representation. Unlike child support, there is no set formula for determining the amount of spousal support that should be paid. The court has wide discretion in setting the amount of support and the duration of support. Spousal support comes in three forms: transitional, compensatory and maintenance. Factors that might be considered in determining spousal support include, but are not limited to, the length of the marriage, the property division, the financial needs and resources of each spouse, and spouses’ income, earning capacity, education and work experience.
