- The income of both individuals, including income that resulted from property division during the divorce.
- The earning abilities of each individual.
- The physical, mental, and emotional state of each individual.
- The anticipated retirement benefits of each individual.
- The length of the marriage.
- The likelihood that the spouse with lower income can seek better employment.
- The standard of living that the individuals established and shared during the marriage.
- The education of each individual.
- The assets and liabilities of each individual, including court-ordered child support that resulted from the divorce.
- The contribution of each individual to the other’s education, training, or earning ability (such as obtaining a professional degree).
- The anticipated time and expense that the spouse with lower income would have to put forth to acquire higher income or furthered education.
- The tax consequences each individual would endure if they received spousal support.
- The income capacity that a spouse lost as a result of their marital responsibilities.
- Any other factor that the court finds to be relevant.
