How Do Michigan Courts Determine Alimony?

The court considers the following factors in awarding alimony:

  • The past relations and conduct of the parties;
  • The length of the marriage;
  • The ability of the parties to work and their respective income;
  • The source and amount of property awarded to the parties;
  • The age of the parties;
  • The ability of the parties to pay spousal support;
  • The present situation of the parties;
  • The needs of the parties;
  • The health of the parties;
  • The prior standard of living of the parties and whether either is responsible
    for the support of others; and
  • General principles of equity.

How is alimony awarded? May it be modified?

A judgment of divorce must either award spousal support, expressly reserve the issue or state that neither party is entitled to spousal support.

Spousal support may be modified on a showing of a change in circumstances that warrants modification unless the parties agreed to non-modifiable spousal support.
