After a court determines both the incomes of the parties from all sources and their respective earning abilities, it will become clear whether there is any significant disparity in their incomes. Where one party believes the other’s income is below his or her potential, a vocational evaluation may be used in an attempt to affect the spousal support analysis.
Even when there is a significant disparity in incomes, the length of marriage and the tax implications of spousal support must be considered, along with the other statutory factors involved in any spousal support case.
Whenever you face the potential of spousal support, it is imperative that you retain an attorney with extensive experience in gathering the relevant information, who is adept at weighing the factors, and who can understand the nuances of your particular situation.
