Alimony: Court Considers The Parties’ Earning Capacities & Education When Determining Alimony

One of the factors that a Judge looks at when determining alimony is the earning capacities, educational levels, vocational skills, and employability of the parties and, when applicable, the time necessary for either party to acquire sufficient education or training to enable such party to find appropriate employment.

If for example, one of the parties was not employed during the marriage, the court will consider that party’s ability to become employed and the time needed to become employed when determining the type of alimony and duration of alimony awarded to that party.

For example, if a party is capable of becoming self-supporting, rehabilitative alimony rather than permanent alimony may be appropriate.

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.
