Spousal Support in Virginia
Not all cases involve support from one spouse to the other. The obligation of one spouse to support the other financially for a temporary or permanent basis is decided on a case-by-case basis as agreed to by the parties or at the court’s discretion.
- Temporary spousal support is needed for a party to attain education and training necessary to allow the party to prepare for reentry into the job market or for advancement therein.
- Compensatory spousal support when there has been a significant financial or other contribution by one party to the education, training, vocational skills, career or earning capacity of the other party.
- Spousal maintenance as a contribution by one spouse to the support of the other for either a specified or an indefinite period.
