Alimony: Court Considers The Parties’ Contributions To The Marriage When Determining Alimony

One of the factors a Judge looks at when determining alimony is the contribution of each party to the marriage, including, but not limited to, services rendered in homemaking, child care, education, and career building of the other party.

This factor takes into consideration that the contributions to a marriage do not need to be only in terms of income or property.

The value of services for rearing children and running the household, or for contribution to the spouse’s career or a business, should also be considered.

For example, a spouse’s duties as a homemaker could be recognized as a significant contribution to the marriage, even though it was not a money-earning activity.

In addition to this factor, there are numerous other factors that a court looks at in determining the type of alimony awarded, the amount of alimony, and the length of time alimony must be paid for a particular case.
