Spousal Support to Ensure Lifestyle
Spousal support (or alimony) is usually a regular monthly payment made by one spouse to the other to help the other spouse maintain the same quality of life that he or she was accustomed to during the relationship. The most common issues that factor into calculating spousal support are; income of both spouses, how long you were married, whether you have children, and the age and health of both spouses and each child. The Courts may also refer to the Spousal Support Advisory Guidelines.
