Spousal Support

Yes, spousal support is a very emotional and often a very contentious issue in many people's divorces. Spousal support is determined, in many cases, by what's called the marital standard of living. It's also determined and impacted by both of the party's incomes. So it's very important in this particular area of your divorce that you have good information about what the other person is earning, and good information about what you earned while you were married because that information is going to be requested by the judge when he makes your order for spousal support. It's absolutely imperative that this is an area where people cannot afford to take chances in because it will impact your future ability to support yourself, your children, and your future.
