How Are Spousal Payments Negotiated?

In Virginia, there is no formal or set calculation for spousal support, nor is there a requirement that one spouse will pay the other. Instead, the family court considers a number of factors when making a decision regarding who will pay and how much will be paid. There are several types of support which may apply to your situation depending on the circumstances. This includes temporary support, rehabilitative support, or long-term support.

There are a number of factors which may affect the outcome of your spousal support, including:

  • The length of the marriage
  • Age and condition of each spouse
  • Standard of living throughout the marriage
  • Contributions each party made may also be considered
  • Financial obligations each party has
