Spousal Support

There are two ways spousal support comes into play:




Forsaking your career, you stayed at home.  You cooked, cleaned and took care of your spouse and the children.  Now, decades later, one of you has a well paying job and one does not.


In these cases, support to get a spouse on his or her feet is an important part of divorce.  The courts will likely award such a spouse enough to allow that person to get through school and get a job.




If one spouse finds him or herself enjoying a dramatically different lifestyle, a lifestyle that the other spouse made possible, then spousal support will likely ensue.
