Spousal Support

Spousal Support in Ohio

When going through a divorce, one of the major concerns for both parties is often the issue of spousal support, also known as alimony. Spousal support is a court-ordered payment from one spouse to the other to help maintain their standard of living post-divorce. In Ohio, spousal support is determined based on a variety of factors. In this article, we'll explore those factors and provide an overview of how spousal support is determined in Ohio.

Factors Considered to Determine Spousal Support

The court will consider several factors when determining whether to award spousal support in Ohio. These factors include:

  • The length of the marriage;
  • The income and earning capacity of each spouse;
  • The age and health of each spouse;
  • The standard of living established during the marriage;
  • The education and training of each spouse;
  • The assets and liabilities of each spouse;
  • The tax consequences of the spousal support award; and
  • Any other factors the court deems relevant.
