While the court is the final decision maker over how much alimony is awarded, it is critical that you are able to properly present your need for support or defend yourself against an unfair financial obligation. The amount of alimony is determined by a number of factors, including the length of the marriage, the parties' incomes and expenses, the standard of living maintained during the marriage, each parties' ability to earn income based on employment and educational background, each parties' health and need for health insurance and, in some cases, marital fault such as adultery.
