Spousal Support

The unpredictability of spousal support makes it one of the most difficult divorce issues on which the attorneys at Taylor Huguley Powers counsel their clients. Conventional wisdom in the Northern Virginia area says for every judge there is a different potential outcome in the same spousal support case; and because there are dozens of judges in Northern Virginia, then there are dozens of possible outcomes on the same set of facts. While in most areas of family law attorneys are able to give clients a fairly narrow range of potential outcomes, spousal support is simply a different animal. Due to the broad range of discretion the spousal support statute affords judges in Virginia, the amount and length of spousal support a party receives can vary greatly from one judge to the next. Let the attorneys at Taylor Huguley Powers guide you through the complex process of determining spousal support.
