Spousal Support

Spousal Support Attorney in Columbus

Aggressively Advocating for Your Rights

Spousal support (often referred to as “alimony,” though this actually no longer exists in Ohio) describes when one spouse provides financial support to the other after a divorce. In many cases, spousal support is one of the most hotly-contested issues in a divorce. Spouses may disagree as to who is responsible for payments, the monetary amount to be paid, how long spousal support will continue, and many other issues. For this reason, it’s essential that you have a skilled and experienced spousal support attorney in Columbus who can help you fight for your rights. At The Law Office of Dmitriy Borshchak, we assist individuals going through all types of divorces, including military and same-sex divorces.

What Factors Are Considered when Determining Spousal Support?

The court will look at a wide range of factors when determining who is responsible, if anyone, for making spousal support payments. These factors are also generally used to determine the amount of support that is to be paid.

When determining how spousal support will be awarded, the court looks at the following factors:

  • The total income of both spouses
  • The age, health, and mental status of both spouses
  • How long the marriage lasted
  • The general earning ability of both parties
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • Total assets and debts of the two spouses
  • The education level of each spouse
  • Any contribution made by one spouse to the other’s earning ability
  • Whether or not a spouse is able to secure employment as a result of child-rearing
  • Tax consequences for either party if spousal support is awarded
  • Time and expense required for the asking spouse to obtain training, education, etc.

The duration of spousal support can vary greatly, though temporary spousal support is the most common. If permanent spousal support is awarded, it can be changed under certain, specific circumstances, such as the remarriage of the receiving spouse or changed economic conditions.
