Family Courts consider many factors when establishing spousal support. Some of the considering factors include whether the support is temporary, the earning capacity of the supported spouse, whether there are assets and/or obligations, the age and health of the parties, the length of the parties’ marriage and whether there is a history of domestic violence. The goal of support orders is to have each party become self-sufficient.
