Spousal Support Faqs

Spousal Support FAQs

  • Q:How much support after divorce will you receive?

    A:The amount of spousal support or alimony you will receive is affected by many factors including the length of your marriage, the discrepancy in your earnings versus what your ex earns, and contributions you made to the career and the marriage.

  • Q:How long are support payments required?

    A:Your ex-spouse may either be obliged to pay you temporary support or permanent support, depending upon the court order at the time your marriage ends. A prenuptial agreement, a negotiated agreement between you and your ex, or a decision by the judge can all be determinative in establishing how long support payments must be made.

  • Q:Will I have to Seek Employment After Divorce if I Have Always Been a Homemaker?

    A:If you have always been a homemaker but your marriage ends, your spouse is likely not going to be expected to support you forever. Unless your ex agrees to pay alimony permanently, you will likely have to find employment because the court may award only temporary alimony or may award an amount of alimony that is not sufficient to cover all your costs. However, if there are extenuating circumstances such as a long marriage or a disabled relative to care for, you may not have to return to work.
