Des Moines Spousal Support Lawyer
What Is Spousal Support?
Also known as alimony, spousal support is awarded in the state of Iowa based on one spouse's need to receive support payments and the other spouse's ability to make payments.
These payments are based on the quality of life the couple enjoyed throughout the duration of their marriage, and it can be agreed upon by the couple during mediation or by a judge in court.
If taken to court, a judge will determine a spousal support plan after looking at a wide range of specific issues.
There are numerous factors that the court uses to determine spousal support, including:
- Each spouse's income
- The duration of the marriage
- The age and health of both parties
- Any provisions of a marital agreement
- The levels of contribution to the marriage made by both parties
- The parties’ combined assets, including property acquired throughout the marriage by both parties
