Using Support To Provide Financial Stability
Written by our divorce lawyers in Manassas
Child support and spousal support may be awarded after divorce to help ensure both parties have the financial resources they need to raise the children and maintain the lifestyle they grew accustomed to during the marriage.

In Virginia, there is no formula for calculating spousal support, which is also called alimony. Instead, spousal support is based on the judge’s discretion and several factors, including the length of the marriage, financial contributions of each party to the household income, earning capacity of both parties and lifestyle maintained during the marriage.
