Tigard Spousal Support Lawyers
Consultation: (503) 743-0185
In family structures, often one spouse is unable to support themselves after the parties have separated. Maybe it is because one parent stayed home to help raise kids and needs help to transition into the workplace. Maybe there is a big difference between the parties' incomes, or one spouse is unable to work, even though there is an ability to work.
There are many factors that affect whether spousal support should be granted to one party, and if it is, for how long.
Factors that affect spousal support:
- How many years were the parties married
- Each party's training and employment skills
- Each party's work experience
- Financial resources
- Financial need
- A party's child custody responsibilities
- The relative earning capacity of the parties
- The age and health of the parties
