Considerations for Alimony

There are many considerations that the court can take into consideration when establishing alimony. Either spouse can ask for alimony from the other. When determining alimony, the court evaluates:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Age and health of both parties
  • Economic and occupations skills of both parties
  • Fault of either party of divorce
  • Federal tax consequences of the order
  • Contribution of each party financially

The above, as well as other factors, are considered when alimony is requested. The party that is seeking alimony must show a lack of sufficient income or property to reasonably provide for him or herself. The individual who is asked to pay alimony must be able to meet his or her own needs prior to supporting the other party. The party needing alimony must be unable to support him or her through employment at a reasonable standard of living.
