I undestand the temp formula but in reading online that is not applied once the divornce is final. Are you sayting that it would be?
Not exactly blaming your answer. With that said I just could have come up with this answer myself. I was looking for some information based on experiences for similar situations or what a lawyer would recommend if they were mediating the case.
I am a mediator and the parties may come up with anything from nothing to $50k under these circumstances and so could a court depending on all the evidence which is elicited at trial.
I took your question because you seemed to understand that this would be a ballpark amount. It is certainly open to negotiations, but a persuasive argument could be made from either side. The length of the marriage weighs in your favor, but the potential needs of your spouse would normally weigh in her favor, so it really depends on all the evidence which is set forth in a particular case.
