Prior Lake, MN Spousal Support Lawyer Serving the South Metro
If you made most (or all) of the money for the household during your marriage, it’s possible that your ex will request spousal support after the divorce.
Will they get it? If the judge determines your ex can’t afford to make a living with their current job or they don’t have the means to get gainful employment, you bet they’ll get spousal support. It’s important to hire a spousal support attorney to help you through it.
What is Spousal Support Based On?
Not every divorce results in spousal support. Plenty of couples have split and gone their own ways financially. But if your divorce does lead to spousal support, it’ll be based on these factors:
- How long you were married
- Your employment and how much you each earn
- Prenups and other marital agreements
- Division of marital property
- You and your ex’s health and age
- You and your ex’s education levels
- And more
