Determining Alimony in a New Haven County Divorce
How Is Alimony Determined by the Court?
Whether or not alimony will be paid, how long it will be paid for, how
much will be paid, and by which spouse must be responsible for payments
should be discussed by a couple seeking a
divorce. Determining alimony is an important factor in any case, and with the
help of a skilled and experienced New Haven County divorce lawyer, can
be decided on with as little conflict as possible. When spouses are unable
to agree on alimony issues, the court will step in and after examining
several different factors will make a decision as to what alimony settlement
will be ordered.
- The court in Connecticut determines alimony by taking the following into
- How long the couple was married
- Why the marriage ended
- The economic needs of each spouse
- The age and health of each spouse
- The current and future earning capacity of each spouse
- How assets are being divided in the divorce
