I am divorcing after 25 years of marriage. Kids are all grown. One of us makes about twice what the other makes but the lower earner gets medical insurance for the family and receives their personal coverage for free along with 401k and pension benefits.
In this situation, 1) Does the higher earning spouse typically pay alimony and if so, what is the formula and for how long? 2) Does the lower earner’s free medical and pension and 401k benefits (company matches what employee contributes to the 401k and pension) get included as income in the formula?
