Factors Virginia Courts Considered in Spousal Support Cases

Under Virginia law, when a court must decide the nature, amount and duration of an award of spousal support, it is required to consider 13 specific factors. Although these factors cover a wide variety of potential facts and circumstances, the facts most commonly presented to the court focus on the following:

  • The parties' respective income and expenses
  • The length of the marriage
  • The standard of living during the marriage
  • Each party's positive and negative contributions to the family unit during the marriage
  • The employment and employability of each party, taking into consideration earning potential, education, age and physical and mental health
