While spousal support is not typically required, it is often ordered during the divorce process, especially when one spouse depended on the other financially.

Understanding the Types of Spousal Support

Depending on the situation of your divorce and a variety of the factors listed above, you may be entitled to one of the several types of spousal support. Also known as alimony, spousal support may be given on a temporary or permanent basis. The family court will typically make a decision after reviewing your paperwork, which is why it is important to have an experienced Fairfax spousal support lawyer on your side advocating for you.

The main types of spousal support are:

  • Temporary: Temporary spousal support is usually issued if one spouse has become dependent on the other during the marriage. There may be conditions put on this type of spousal support, such as until the dependent gets a new job or has other income.
  • Permanent: Permanent spousal support is an order which is given based on the length of the marriage and other factors during the marriage. The amount will be determined by the judge unless you and your spouse are able to agree and propose a number.
