Spousal support cases are different in every state. Which is why if you are in Los Angeles the terms and conditions of your spousal support outcome could be vastly different from someone who is going through the same case in Nebraska. Not every divorce needs a spousal support case as well, if both parties make the same amount of money and have kept all their assets separate, there may be no need; or if a prenuptial agreement was signed waving spousal support. There is also a common thought that no matter how long you have been married, if you get divorced the wife automatically gets half and life time spousal support. That is not the case more often than not. Men can also get spousal support if their soon to be ex-wife made significantly more money than them or if they were not working during their marriage.
Typically if you were married under five years, you won’t have the best chances of getting or having to pay alimony. If you were married five to ten years your chances are a bit higher.
