How Is Spousal Support Calculated in NY?
In New York State, there are several types of spousal support, including temporary, durational, and permanent. When a case is brought to trial, a judge will evaluate the spouses’ financial situation to determine if support payments are appropriate, how much should be paid, and how long the payments should last for.
When deciding on spousal support, the court will consider several factors, including:
- The needs of the spouse requesting support
- The ability of the other spouse to pay
- Each spouse’s present and future earning capacity
- The age of each spouse
- The length of the marriage
- The health of each spouse
- Any contributions made by one spouse to enhance the other’s career
- The ability of the spouse petitioning for alimony to become self-supporting
- One spouse’s need to incur training or education expenses
- Any inhibition of one spouse’s earning capacity due to caring for children
- Any presence of abuse that affected one spouse’s ability to obtain or maintain employment
