Experienced Alimony Lawyers Helping People in Glen Allen, Luray, Colonial Heights, and Harrisonburg.

Spousal support, alimony, can be a complex legal issue. Wives are becoming the primary breadwinners of families with increasing regularity, and two-income families are more common than not. Due to these positive economic changes, fair and appropriate spousal support becomes more difficult to determine.

Spousal Support Factors

In Virginia, the court considers a number of factors when determining spousal support awards:

  • Duration of marriage: One of the most important considerations for the court is the length of the marriage. Although there is no minimum length of a marriage that is required for a spouse to receive spousal support, a very short marriage is likely to yield a shorter spousal support award than a marriage that lasted 30 years.
  • Education and earning capacity: The court will consider the ability of each party to earn money, including the education, experience, and training each has received.
  • Need vs. ability to pay: The court will balance the earning capacity of one party against the need of the other.
