Spousal support can be a heated issue in divorce cases, and the questions surrounding spousal support do not always have one straight answer. Unlike child support which is calculated objectively, spousal support is a subjective matter. The circumstances of each individual Michigan divorce case affect the way spousal support is determined and paid.
Divorcing parties typically want to know two main things: How much spousal support do I have to pay? And how long do I have to pay it? There are many factors that comprise the spousal support formula. Spousal support, also known as alimony, has only one constant: There is no right or wrong answer in how to determine spousal support. Now, the parties involved may feel that there is indeed a “right” and a “wrong,” but it’s ultimately up to the judge assigned to the case to determine what they think is appropriate for the situation at hand.
