How To Attain Spousal Support During Your Divorce

While a divorce case is pending, you may be entitled to receive temporary spousal maintenance. Once the case is concluded, this form of maintenance ends.

A divorce decree may also require payment, after a case concludes, of permanent spousal maintenance or rehabilitative spousal maintenance.

Although not often needed, an individual may be awarded spousal support permanently if the individuals earning ability is impaired due to health problems.

Other factors taken into consideration when determining spousal support include:

  • Education of each spouse
  • Employment and income
  • Marketable skills
  • Amount of time unemployed
  • Decisions made during division of assets
  • Each spouses homemaking responsibilities
