Spousal Support/Alimony

Warren Spousal Support Lawyer

Handling Divorce and Alimony Issues in Ohio

In Ohio, spousal support is defined as “the payment or payments to be made to a spouse or former spouse…that is both for sustenance and for support of the spouse or former spouse.” Whether it is temporary or permanent, Ohio law dictates that spousal support may be paid during and after a divorce. The courts will determine how much will be awarded and which spouse is entitled to it.

At Charles A. Ziegler, Attorney at Law, we are fluent in the language of the laws that govern spousal support. Our firm is dedicated to helping divorce and family law clients in Warren, Youngstown, Newton Falls and all of the surrounding areas. We take the time to explain the laws to our clients and help them understand how it applies to their individual situations.

Factors That Influence Spousal Support

Previously referred to as “alimony,” spousal support used to be awarded to a wife to support her after divorce. However, the law now is gender-neutral and may be awarded to a husband or a wife based on a number of factors such as:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The age of each party
  • Each party’s earning capacity
  • The assets that each party brought into and is taking out of the marriage
  • The type of lifestyle lived during the marriage
  • The health of the parties

A judge can consider all of these factors, as well as others, individually or together in order to determine the amount of spousal support and if it is warranted. Attorney Charles A. Ziegler has been handling all aspects of family law and divorce cases for over 30 years and can handle your spousal support matters, whether you are seeking it or attempting to prevent it from being awarded.
