Stillwater Spousal Support Attorney
Personal Legal Service at Affordable Rates
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is a payment that one spouse must make to the other during and/or after a divorce in order to financially assist them. If the partners cannot agree to a set amount of support or to the amount of time it must be given, the court typically will step in and order it when spousal support is appropriate.
How Much Spousal Support Will I Get or Have to Pay?
There is no set formula or guideline for determining spousal support. If the spouses cannot agree to an amount or duration, then it is up to the judge to decide based on a number of factors.
Issues that go into this decision may include the following:
- Age of the spouses
- Health of the spouses
- Education and earning potential
- Lifestyle prior to the separation
- Length of the marriage
- Property that produces income for either spouse after a divorce
Can Spousal Support Be Modified?
Spousal support can be modified or terminated if certain circumstances change in the lives of either spouse. If the spouse who was receiving support gets remarried or moves in with a romantic partner, the support may be terminated under Oklahoma law. It may also be terminated or modified if an extreme circumstance affects either spouse’s ability to work.
