Experienced Divorce Lawyers in Portland Oregon
There are so many questions that have to be answered when a couple decides to divorce. One of the most common questions that you might have about divorce is how does spousal support (or alimony) work? Spousal support is determined by many different factors, including how much each spouse is able to earn after divorce, how long the couple was married, their work experience and the financial needs of each party.
When a couple decides to divorce, a court may order one spouse to pay spousal support to the other party. That support could last for a long period of time or it could just be a temporary ruling. Another important thing to be aware of regarding spousal support is that in Oregon there are three different types: transitional spousal support, compensatory spousal support and maintenance spousal support.
At Ronald Johnston Family Law we’ll help you understand the difference of each of these types of spousal support and whether or not they will affect your situation.
