“Jaclyn made an alimony issue for me feel very easy and stress free. I was so worried about the entire situation and she handled super quick and made me feel at ease about everything. I would highly recommend her! I can tell she really cares about her clients and the outcome.”
Depending on your situation, Utah court may grant alimony to a divorcing spouse. Alimony, also known as spousal support, is court ordered support paid by one party to the other and may be awarded temporarily or for a longer period after divorce is final. The purpose of alimony is to avoid unfair economic consequences of divorce.
How is Alimony Calculated?
Unlike child support, alimony does not have a set calculation. When awarding alimony, the court considers many factors including:
The actual need for alimony
Length of marriage
Ability of payor spouse to provide support
Actual earning or imputed earning potential of recipient spouse
Standard of living during marriage
The length of time alimony will be paid is another area of negotiation during the divorce process. Keep in mind that alimony may not be awarded for longer than the length of the marriage, unless there are specific reasons for doing so.
