How is Alimony calculated?

There are two important factors a judge will consider when calculating the level of alimony. These two factors are “need” and “ability to pay”. Your spouse’s “need” is determined by the length of your marriage and your spouse’s career and educational experience. Your “ability to pay” is determined by your current income, assets, and other financial considerations. It is important to note that both the amount of each payment and how long the payments must made, determine the total level of alimony.
