The basic thing to know is that the courts are somewhat stingy when it comes to granting spousal maintenance requests. But that doesn’t mean that you may not qualify for spousal maintenance, and it may not even be a sizable amount of money based on factors in your case.
The overall idea behind spousal maintenance is that it’s supposed to be rehabilitative in nature. In other words; what do you need so that you can get to a point that you’re capable of earning good money or that you can be on a somewhat comparable financial setting as your spouse.
There is a gateway part of the statute which is the courts way to look at whether you even qualify to receive spousal maintenance. The court is going to look at:You only have to qualify under one of the issues shown above. The courts will look at all factors to determine how much and how long spousal maintenance should last.
Some other examples included in determining spousal maintenance are:
The court is going to evaluate the financial resources that you receive from the divorce. So if you are ending up with a million dollars worth of property, it’s not as likely that you are going to be getting a lot of spousal maintenance, or for an extended period of time either.
If you are going to be required to find employment for yourself, the court is going to decide how long are you will need to receive training in order to find suitable employment adequate enough for you to support yourself.
One other factor that will be considered is the cost of health insurance that you will need to begin providing for yourself.
