The big questions: How much? How long?

The answer: No one really knows.

Alimony is the hardest thing to predict because it is based on very specific statutory factors and an individual judge’s application.

That being said, there are some factors that that often control more than others:

  • Length of marriage
  • Respective incomes
  • Whether one spouse advanced their career during the marriage more than the other
  • Disability of a spouse

What these factors add up to in your case as to how much and how long, that depends on the facts of your case and your judge. Some judges are alimony-heavy, some are not.

The best way to prepare or defend an alimony case is to know the law and know the judges so the attorney can properly present or defend the case.
