The Basic Legal Principles That Apply

While there are no spousal support guidelines, there are some basic legal principles that apply. However, there are certain factors that should be taken into consideration. They are similar to the factors that come into play when determining how property is divided, and often these two issues are addressed simultaneously and dependently.

Factors considered for spousal support include:

  • The financial need of one spouse and the ability of the other to pay
  • The age and health of the spouses
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The earning capacity, educational level and employability of the spouses
