Spousal support, also known as alimony or spousal maintenance in some places, is not actually as common in divorce as movies and television shows lead many people to believe, but it can be included in many divorce agreements.
When it is awarded, determining the amount and length of the award can be complex, and working with an Ohio divorce attorney who has a deep understanding of spousal support law can be critical to achieving a favorable outcome in your case.
Spousal support is a fact-sensitive analysis and is determined on a case-by-case basis. Ohio case law states that spousal support shall be “reasonable and appropriate. To determine if there is an award for spousal support and the award amount, the court will the following into consideration:
If spousal support is awarded it can be left up to the continuing jurisdiction of the Court. The court can modify and/or terminate spousal support if the receiving party “cohabitates” with another, death of the paying party, or other related facts which would warrant a modification.
The allocation of spousal support or alimony payments can have a big impact on your future, and your ability to move on successfully after a divorce. Whether you are expecting to receive or pay support, it is important to consult with a reliable Ohio divorce attorney who can evaluate the specific circumstances of your case, assist you in reporting and uncovering assets, and help you determine how to proceed.
