Spousal Support/Alimony

One of the more complicated and often important issues that arises in a separation or divorce is that related to financial support, including spousal support/Alimony and child support (which is often necessary with a child custody agreement in place). In many marriages, one spouse may have forgone his or her career or education in order to manage the home, raise children, or provide other domestic support. In other cases, a spouse may have been abused and forced to stay at home, necessitating the help of a Salt Lake City domestic violence attorney.

These arrangements can often result in a significant earning and earning-potential disparity between spouses. Fortunately for husbands and wives who earn less than their partners, Utah law allows courts to award alimony, which involves periodic payments made from one party to another.

If you need help obtaining spousal support or child support, or you are facing other family law issues, such as child custody modification or matters involving Utah domestic litigation, reach out to the Coil Law Firm for immediate and professional assistance.

Who Can Obtain Alimony In Utah?

Courts have significant discretion in determining whether to award spousal support in a particular case. Alimony is available to spouses while a case is pending or after a divorce has been granted. Courts consider a number of factors when deciding whether to award alimony, including the following:

  • The financial condition of the party requesting alimony;
  • The ability of the party requesting alimony to earn money or produce an income, including their work history and passive income;
  • The ability of the paying spouse to provide support;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • Whether the party requesting alimony has custody of minor children who need support;
  • Whether the party requesting alimony worked in a business owned or operated by his or her spouse;
  • Whether the party requesting alimony contributed to the other party’s skills by paying for educational expenses or allowing them to attend school during the marriage; and
  • Whether either party engaged in infidelity, physical abuse, domestic violence, or financial irresponsibility.

Because family court judges have wide discretion in determining alimony awards, it is important for anyone seeking or contesting alimony to retain an attorney familiar with Utah family law. In many cases, the representation of an attorney can have a significant impact on a court’s alimony determination.
