Understanding How Spousal Maintenance Is Determined
During a divorce proceeding, courts in Ohio examine more than a dozen factors when deciding to whom spousal maintenance should be awarded and the duration of support payments. These factors include:
- The length of a marriage
- The income of both parties
- The relative earning potential of both parties
- The inability of one party to work due to the requirements of child rearing
- The time and expense necessary for the spouse seeking support to acquire education or training to obtain employment
Whether our client is seeking to obtain spousal support or minimize the amount of support he or she will have to pay, we ensure that courts have all the necessary information in a light most favorable to our client’s position.
