Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist. There is no calculator to determine spousal support as is the case with child support. Instead, spousal support is a need-based award......which means what you would be required to pay would depend on her income (from all sources), what she needs to maintain her bills and what you can afford to pay.
