Kentucky Divorce Alimony
Depending upon the financial circumstances of both the spouses, Kentucky divorce alimony is granted either on as a temporary or as a permanent one. Generally, the court of Kentucky grants alimony when both the spouses have come to a definite conclusion regarding the amount and duration of the alimony to be paid. If in case the couple fails to come to any settlement regarding the payment of alimony the court determines whether the alimony is to be paid or not based on certain factors mentioned in the Kentucky Statutes of Title 35 in Chapters: 403.200. If the court deems it to be just, the following are the guide lines that are considered while awarding alimony to the alimony seeking spouse.
There are several other issues that come on the way while making the decision of the granting alimony. The once ordered alimony can be requested for reviewing the alimony order by either of the spouses. The court may modify the time duration and the specified sum of the alimony based on the ground of "change in circumstances."
- The financial resource available with the spouse asking for the alimony is taken into account. If he or she is found to be financially unstable and is not capable to maintain the quality of lifestyle similar to that of before divorce, the spouse is granted alimony. But a special note is also made on how far the other spouse is economically strong to provide financial support to the alimony seeking spouse.
- While awarding a temporary or a rehabilitative form of alimony, the court determines the duration of the payment of alimony based on how much time the spouse will require to complete his or her educational qualifications to make oneself self supportive.
- Another very important determinant for deciding on the amount of spousal support to be paid is the duration of marriage. Compared to earlier days, the sum of alimony generally awarded is quite less in amount. But often it is the case that the sum granted becomes high if the length of the marriage life is quite long, more than 10 to 12 years.
- The age and health condition of the alimony seeking party is also a factor that influences the judgment of the awarding of alimony. If the spouse is physically not fit or mentally or emotionally not sound enough to earn for living, the court can order the other partner to provide spousal support to him or her.
