Learn More from Our Des Moines Family Lawyer
Also known as alimony, spousal support is awarded in the state of Iowa
based on one spouse's need to receive support payments and another
spouse's ability to make payments. These payments are based the lifestyle
the couple lived throughout the extent of their marriage, and 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 several factors that the court uses to determine spousal support
including but not limited to:
- The duration of the marriage
- The combined assets including property acquired throughout the marriage
by both parties
- Each spouse's income
- Any provisions of a prenuptial agreement
- The age and health of both parties
- The level of contribution to the marriage made by both parties
