Necessary to Prove Self-Sufficiency

In the state of Missouri, the courts tend to favor individuals who are self-sufficient, meaning that the spouse seeking alimony is tasked with providing evidence that they indeed need the financial support. Both spouses can make their claim to the judge, offering supporting evidence. Whether you are seeking spousal support or are being asked to financially support your partner, our divorce attorneys can help you.

The following factors come into play when determining spousal support:

  • The standard of living that was maintained during the length of the marriage
  • Current education and work experience of the spouse requesting alimony
  • Earning capacity of each spouse
  • Assets and debts, both marital and separate
  • Child custody arrangements
  • History of domestic abuse
  • The role of each spouse during the marriage (i.e. primary caregiver)

    How Long Does Spousal Support Last?

    Alimony in Missouri is not a lifelong commitment. Depending on the financial needs of the individual receiving the support, alimony can be modified or terminated. To make sure that the individual receiving support doesn't take advantage of the paying individual, the courts require the recipient to actively seek employment in order to become self-sufficient. It is important to view alimony as temporary aid and not as indefinite financial payments.
