How Do I Get Alimony in Ohio?

In order to successfully petition for spousal support, the requesting spouse would need to provide proof that they need this alimony, and that the other spouse makes enough to afford such payments. While spousal support is likelier to be granted the longer a divorcing couple was married, it is still possible to get spousal support for a shorter marriage.

How Long Does Alimony Last in Ohio?

It depends on the specific of a case, what a judge ends up signing off on as the final court order.

Temporary Spousal Support

  • Temporary spousal support lasts the length of the divorce process
  • It is meant to help one spouse who makes considerably less than the other

Permanent Spousal Support

  • Despite the name, it can be short-term in some cases; it just means the spousal support will last after the divorce is finalized
  • It is ordered when one spouse is not self-supporting
  • This spousal support lasts until the spouse gets the education and experience needed to be self-supporting

How Is Spousal Support Calculated in Ohio?

The court will determine how much alimony to award based on the following factors and many others:

  • The duration of the marriage
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The financial situation of each spouse
  • The ability of each spouse to contribute to their own support
  • Any contribution by one spouse to the education, training, or increased earning power of the other spouse
  • The age and health of both spouses
  • The child custody arrangement
