How alimony is calculated involves more than just income.
These factors are numerous, including the following:
- Each spouse’s earning capacity
- How much one spouse contributed to the education of the other
- The supporting spouse’s ability to provide spousal support
- Each spouse’s needs and standard of living during marriage
- The separate property of each spouse
- How long the spouses were married
- The ability of the supported spouse to get a job while caring for children
- The age and health of both spouses
- Any history of domestic violence between the parties
