Important Factors for Spousal Maintenance
How exactly does the court rule on a spousal agreement? The truth is that there are many factors that go into crafting these agreements. While every divorce is different, a judge will review these certain elements of the marriage to arrive at maintenance agreement they believe will be equitable for both spouses.
Just some of these factors include:
- The duration of the marriage
- The income of each spouse
- The marital property each spouse will receive in the divorce
- The current earning capacity of each spouse
- The potential earning capacity of each spouse
- Either spouse's need for training or education
- Either spouse's earning capacity that was inhibited by the marriage
- The potential of the maintenance seeking spouse to become self-supporting
Not all of these are relevant to every marriage and other factors may require consideration for your spousal maintenance agreement. It is up for assertive and dedicated counsel to make sure that clarity is provided on these matters and that the circumstances of your marriage are not being exaggerated or manipulated in any way by the opposing counsel.
