Who Is Eligible for Spousal Maintenance in Arizona?

In order to qualify for spousal maintenance, you must meet certain criteria as laid out by the state of Arizona. Most importantly, the court must determine that one spouse has a substantial financial need and the other spouse has the ability to pay spousal maintenance.

When awarding spousal maintenance, the court will look at various factors, including but not limited to:

  • How long the marriage lasted
  • The standard of living established during the marriage
  • The ability of the paying spouse to meet both spouses’ financial needs
  • The age, earning ability, and physical or emotional condition of the asking spouse
  • Employment opportunities and educational opportunities of the asking spouse
  • Spending habits, including excessive or secretive spending, of both spouses
  • If children are involved, the ability of either spouse to meet the child’s educational costs
  • Health insurance costs for both the asking and the paying spouse

These are just some of the most common factors involved in determining spousal support—the factors involved in your unique situation will depend on the circumstances involved.
