Spousal/Child Support

Spousal Support / Child Support

There are many factors that must be considered when evaluating spousal support. The methods used to determine spousal support are different when assessing temporary support and long term support. Temporary spousal support is support you receive pending dissolution of marriage and is typically based off of guideline calculations. Long term support is spousal support after the divorce and support cannot be determined off of guideline calculation but is based on other factors such as the respective incomes of each spouse, length of marriage, ability to work, and other considerations.

Child support is primarily based off of guideline support which is determined by using programs such as Dissomaster. The program uses factors such as the party’s respective incomes, each party’s percentage of parenting time, as well as other associated expenses.
