Determining A Fair Spousal Support Solution

Washington Law determines maintenance (also called alimony or spousal support). The statute sets out specific factors the court must consider when making an award of maintenance. These factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Does a party have a need for maintenance?

2. Does the other party have the ability to pay maintenance?

3. The marital standard of living.

4. The assets and debts of the parties.

5. The length of the couple's marriage.

6. The age and health of the parties.

7. Whether one parent delayed seeking employment or education to raise children.

Expert Legal Counsel for Your Maintenance Case

In any case, pending trial, there may be a maintenance request. A party needs to understand how this will affect their other financial obligations. Expert testimony is sometimes necessary to determine a married couple's standard of living and actual income, especially when one person is self-employed or doesn't have a job. To get or defend against a claim for maintenance, you need a lawyer with experience, and Robin J. Krane knows the law in this area.
