How Spousal Support Is Determined in New York

When deciding which spouse will receive spousal support and how much support will be paid, the court looks at a variety of factors. The most important factors are the needs of the spouse seeking alimony and the ability of the other spouse to pay.

Other factors the court takes into account when awarding spousal support include:

  • The age and overall health of each spouse
  • The total length of the marriage
  • The present and future earning potential of each spouse
  • Whether one spouse will incur expense for education and/or job training
  • If the seeking spouse is able to support him/herself
  • Non-monetary contributions, including childcare, made by either spouse to the marriage
  • The distribution of assets and property

This is not an exhaustive list; the court may take additional factors into account when ruling on your spousal support case. In any event, it’s wise to enlist the assistance of a skilled spousal support lawyer in Albany who can help you create a compelling case that protects your best interests.
