Keep These Factors in Mind Regarding Spousal Support (Alimony)
- Length of the marriage
- Each spouse’s age
- Employment History
- Ability to pay
- Retirement/health insurance
- Tax consequences (property)
- Economic (mis)conduct
What does it take you to maintain your life? It may not be a question you ask yourself every day, but this is when spousal support can become important to review. For couples that have been married for ten years or more, Title 19-A of the Domestic Relations statutes outline the specific considerations, which can be found at this link:
Modifying an Existing Spousal Support Order
You may petition the court to modify spousal support at any time if either party shows a significant change in circumstances. Some examples of a significant change include a change in income, or a move. The spousal support ends when either spouse dies, or if the spouse receiving support remarries. Spousal support payments are taxable to the spouse who receives them, and they are tax deductible to the paying spouse.
