More times than not, in Michigan, alimony is referred to as spousal support. Many individuals seeking a divorce are unaware as to what alimony is or how it is determined. Alimony or spousal support needs to be taken into consideration early on so you can plan for it financially. There is no specific mathematical formula to determine whether or not spousal support should be awarded or how much is to be awarded. Neither is there a set length of time support ought to be awarded. Instead, the judge regards the unique factors of the case and assigns an amount to the case. Michigan judges take several factors into consideration when determining how much support to award to either spouse, which include:
- The past relations and conduct of the parties
- Length of the marriage
- Ability of the parties to work and pay alimony
- Source and amount of the property awarded to the parties
- Age of both parties
- Present situations
- Needs of the parties
- Prior standard of living of both spouses
- General principles of equity
