Spousal support is called alimony, and support for a child is called child support. Various factors play a part in determining how much alimony or child support will be received. These factors may include the incomes of the spouses, the financial needs of the parties, the financial needs of the children, any special or unique financial needs of any family members, the physical child custody schedule being shared by the parents, among other issues. No two families are the same, and therefore, answering the support question is a complex one. A family law attorney will be able to assist you in reviewing the financial aspects of your case to assist in determining what types of support is available and possible amounts that can be expected.
