How is spousal support determined in Virginia?

If you are like most people in Virginia, you have likely spent a great deal of time and effort into planning for the future. Unfortunately, this concern can prevent some people from taking action in their life that could ultimately result in more happiness and less conflict. That is, some people may delay seeking a divorce over financial concerns. In a situation such as this, having an experienced family law attorney on their side can help as they address their financial concerns, including whether and how much spousal support one party must pay.

Each individual case is unique. Additionally, judges often have a great deal of discretion in the decisions that they make. Because the decision could have a significant impact on your financial stability -- whether you think you are owed spousal support or may have to pay it -- the attorneys at Powell Radomsky, PLLC, are here to help.

There are several factors that judges consider when coming to a decision regarding support. Factors include how long the couple was married, the earning capacity of each individual, whether one person stayed at home with children, the income of each, and whether the lesser-earning spouse committed adultery. Regardless of the individual circumstances of your case, our attorneys are committed to common sense measures that will result in fair resolutions.

We are committed to helping our Virginia clients seek a more secure financial future. We have experience creating creative solutions, especially when responding to family law issues that are complex. Often, an initial consultation is the first step toward fully understand the potential spousal support and other unique issues that may arise during your case.
