Determining Alimony in Virginia

In Virginia, neither party has any absolute right to alimony upon divorce. As such, spousal support is determined on a case-by-case basis. Though the law outlines general criteria that a judge should consider when awarding alimony, there are few guidelines to help them determine how much support should be awarded and how long those payments should last.

When determining an alimony award, the court will consider various factors, including:

  • Each spouse’s income and earning potential
  • Child custody arrangements, if applicable
  • Whether one spouse forewent education or work opportunities for the sake of the marriage or to maintain the household
  • The cost of living
  • The lifestyle the couple enjoyed during the marriage

Modifying and Enforcing Your Spousal Support Order

The court may modify existing spousal support payments if a material change in either party’s circumstances necessitates an adjustment. If you wish to request a modification, you must file a petition with the court and prove your need for the adjustment. 
You can seek enforcement action if your spouse needs to catch up on their spousal support payments or flat-out refuses to pay you. Our spousal support attorney in Fredericksburg can help you navigate this process and ensure you get the full payment to which you are entitled.
