Helping You Address Post-Divorce Financial Expectations

One of the most important issues to address in your divorce order is your financial expectations for the future. In some cases, one spouse will have to pay spousal support to a lesser-earning spouse, but whether you expect to receive payments or think you may have to pay, we can explain your rights and help you pursue a fair divorce order.

The end of a marriage brings significant financial changes for both parties, and at Powell Piper Radomsky, PLLC, our attorneys help Virginia families pursue a foundation of stability and security for the future. There is no cookie-cutter solution to spousal support concerns, which is why we strive for positive solutions custom-tailored to your needs.

How Does Spousal Support Work In Virginia Divorces?

The intent of spousal support is to offset the economic discrepancy often felt by the lesser-earning spouse in a divorce, and these payments should be fair. Factors considered in spousal support discussions or negotiations include:

  • Length of the marriage
  • Income of both spouses
  • Earning capacity of both spouses
  • Whether or not one spouse stayed home with the children
  • Whether the spouse in need of support has committed adultery

Spousal support is different in every case, and due to the broad discretion afforded to our judges, outcomes can vary considerably. You will find significant benefit in having a lawyer with knowledge of applicable divorce laws and experience in our local courts to help you navigate this complex issue.
