Spousal Support
 
Hi,

I and my ex are married for 6.6 years and I have been paying mid range spousal support and her lawyers wants the spousal support to be reviewed in three years and I wanted to be reviewed in 2 years and this along with my child parenting time is going for trial so my question at the time of trial it will be 2.5 to 3 years so what will happen in general when reviewed ? Can we request for end date and so how many years generally we need to pay?

Through motion I have imputed 29,000 dollars and she is deliberately doing the basic job when she has done CPA. Your thoughts will be highly appreciated?

Regards

My guess - you'll be paying 3 years by the time of final decision. If entitled, ss would continue with a review date in another 2 years with a strong push to self sufficiency. Hopefully you'll come to an agreement then or else you'll have to go back to court to end it. Courts prefer review dates over end dates when it comes to needs base.

Hi,

Thankyou for the response . Based on your response it wont exceed 6 years of marriage ? and I have a settlement conference coming and I will agree to 2.5 years of review date and then push for end date .

Can we question based on the division of the property she will be self sufficient ?

Regards

There are too many variables to know for sure but assuming it's just the typical you work and they don't, I would think duration would be slightly less than your length of relationship. At trial, you would push for no spousal but have offers now with a review date at year 3 or 4 to avoid trial.

Agreed. 6.6 years is a very short marriage. Talk to a lawyer OP. There are good lawyers that could make that 0.0 years of SS in most cases. Again, like SP says... "too many variables to know for sure".

Usually on a short marriage like this... it's max 1/2 the duration of the marriage and in many cases 0.0 years. Its all about how good of a lawyer you have...

A good lawyer can make all the difference! My thinking is that if entitlement is found in a short marriage, it's more likely to be closer to 100% of length.

Hi,

I will give a background of my case . I 'm making 1,00,000 and she was making 30,000 and then she was laid off and for 1.5 years she didnt work and then called off the marriage and with motion she getting 1000 dollars with a imputed income of 30,000 and there lawyer is not agreeing for a end date but they wanted a review date so I'm not sure whether to agree to 2.3 years of review date or go to trial and ask for a end date . Your thoughts will be highly appreciated as i'm self represented.

You make one million or 100 thousand? Because it makes a difference.

Well lets see. You will wait 2 years to get in front of a judge who may or may not agree to 2.5 years. BUT you will be paying legal and court costs and if she is offering what you will get anyway then she may be entitled to costs which is more money you are out. So ask yourself if fighting her is cheaper than agreeing.
