Comprehensive Spousal Support Knowledge

Spousal support law is intricate, governed by extensive statutes and case law, with judges enjoying broad discretion in issuing orders. Achieving the correct result initially is critical, as spousal support orders are seldom overturned on appeal. These orders may cover several aspects, including the amount, duration, possible step-downs, and related income findings, among others. Spousal support can also be non-modifiable if stipulated in the judgment. The setting of the marital standard of living often involves significant litigation, given that it is not a fixed figure and is subject to judicial discretion. Our firm is equipped to handle these complexities adeptly.

The law relative to a 10-year marriage is quite nuanced. While the difference between a 10 year, an 11 year and a 15-year marriage may be significant. It may not be as significant as one would believe. The issue controlled by the length of marriage is the duration of spousal support.  A nine-year marriage can be treated as a 10-year marriage and an 11-year marriage may be treated very closely to a 10 year marriage.

Spousal support orders are always modifiable unless the parties agreed in writing that the terms of the spousal support order are non-modifiable. Unless the spousal support in non-modifiable, the court may modify spousal support orders upon a significant change of circumstances which may include a change in income, a change in health and a myriad of other potential changes.
