Am I entitled to spousal support?

Spousal support is calculated on a case by case basis. There are several factors taken into consideration when considering spousal support, including:

  • Earning capacity of both parties
  • Standard of living during the marriage
  • Whether one party devoted time to child-rearing and domestic duty instead of career pursuits
  • The ability of each party to pay support
  • Obligations and assets of each party
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Ages of both parties
