At the settlement in divorce, my X gets half of what the paid off home is worth half the marital money and half the pension and assets. I presume yu are saying that you agreed to this, yes?
Am I still iiable for alimony and or spousal support?You are not automatically liable for that, know. If you agreed to pay same and that has become court ordered via your divorce decree, then yes, you'd be liable for that. But if it is not agreed to and not ordered, then, no. Likewise, your spouse is not automatically to owe you alimony either.
State/Country relating to question: Ohio
She has worked a good job making 65k for the past 16 years. We have now been married for 20 years. My income is the same Same as hers, you are saying? but I worked a lot of overtime.I filed for Divorce in 2012 Oct. but as soon as she found out that I was filing, she claimed she got hurt,claimed medical leave from work, and is still to this day not working and claiming she is disabled, and has no money. Don't worry too much about her claims - she will generally need to provide proof of such assertions. Has she been found disabled by the SSA? Has she even filed with the SSA for social security disability benefits? These can be telling, in terms of her claims of being disabled. If the Judge finds that she is not unable to work and earn her $65k, he will typically not order either of you to pay alimony to the other. Here is the list of what your Judge will have to consider when deciding:
(1) In determining whether spousal support is appropriate and reasonable, and in determining the nature, amount, and terms of payment, and duration of spousal support, which is payable either in gross or in installments, the court shall consider all of the following factors:
(a) The income of the parties, from all sources, including, but not limited to, income derived from property divided, disbursed, or distributed under section 3105.171 of the Revised Code;
(b) The relative earning abilities of the parties;
(c) The ages and the physical, mental, and emotional conditions of the parties;
(d) The retirement benefits of the parties;
(e) The duration of the marriage;
(f) The extent to which it would be inappropriate for a party, because that party will be custodian of a minor child of the marriage, to seek employment outside the home;
(g) The standard of living of the parties established during the marriage;
(h) The relative extent of education of the parties;
(i) The relative assets and liabilities of the parties, including but not limited to any court-ordered payments by the parties;
(j) The contribution of each party to the education, training, or earning ability of the other party, including, but not limited to, any party's contribution to the acquisition of a professional degree of the other party;
(k) The time and expense necessary for the spouse who is seeking spousal support to acquire education, training, or job experience so that the spouse will be qualified to obtain appropriate employment, provided the education, training, or job experience, and employment is, in fact, sought;
(l) The tax consequences, for each party, of an award of spousal support;
(m) The lost income production capacity of either party that resulted from that party's marital responsibilities;
