Scottsdale Divorces and Alimony
Spousal support has a long history, and in today’s world the courts seek out specific information to help reach a decision. The money provided by one former spouse to another can help ease the transition from a married to a single life, or help maintain a particular standard of living. Once spousal maintenance amounts are initially set, they can be modified at the court’s discretion through what is known as a modification of spousal support. The initial and subsequent modifications (if any) can be affected by one of the following terms:
- Financial well-being of the responding spouse.
- Self-sufficiency of the seeking spouse.
- The length of the marriage.
- Assistance each spouse has provided the other regarding education, work opportunities, etc.
- Age and health situation of either spouse.
