Do you qualify to receive spousal support?

by | May 20, 2016 | family law

As you go through the divorce process, you may have many questions regarding your financial future. Most importantly, you need to know that you will be able to keep up with your bills now that you are no longer married.

While this may not be a problem for one spouse, the other could find him or herself in a difficult position.

Not every divorce ends up with one partner paying the other spousal support, but this does happen from time to time.

Here is something you need to know: the guidelines for spousal support are detailed and complicated.

Since the court takes many details into consideration, you never know how much spousal support you qualify to receive. There may even come a point when the court decides that you should not receive anything.

Also, it is a good idea to understand that spousal support does not necessarily last forever. You may be awarded this for a particular period of time, such as long enough to receive training in order to rejoin the workforce.
