Alimony


#1

MY HUSBAND LEFT ME AND MY 9 YEAR OLD SON ON CHRISTMAS AFTERNOON AND MOVED 3 HOURS AWAY TO BE NEAR HIS PARENTS AND IS STAYING RENT FREE IN HIS SISTERS 500,000 DOLLAR HOUSE ON THE WATER. I WORK PART-TIME AND MAKE AROUND 11,000 A YEAR, HE MAKES AROUND 112,000 A YEAR. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT AMOUNT WOULD BE FAIR FOR ALIMONY AND CHILD SUPPORT?

There is a child support calculator on this website that you may use to estimate child support.

Alimony will be based on your demonstrated need after your income and child support are accounted for, and your husband’s income, less his reasonable expenses are taken into account.

As a dependant spouse you are entitled to an amount of alimony sufficient to allow you to maintain the standard of living you enjoyed during the time you lived with your spouse.
