With over 40 years of combined experience, our spousal support attorneys in Summerlin have what it takes to see your case through to the end, never wavering from our focus on your success.

How Alimony Is Calculated
If you and your spouse can agree on the terms of a fair alimony order, you have the right to present your wishes to the court for approval. If you and your spouse cannot agree on alimony and a judge feels one party deserves spousal support, he or she will calculate the award for you. Alimony can be ordered during the divorce or after it. Payments may be finite or can last indefinitely – though indefinite alimony is usually reserved for marriages of 10 or more years.
Factors a judge considers when calculating alimony include:
- Whether one spouse contributed to the other’s education, professional development, or earning potential
- Each spouse’s monthly income
- Each spouse’s assets and debts
- How long the marriage lasted
- Each spouse’s health (both physical and mental)
- Whether one spouse is at-fault for the breakdown of the marriage
