Virginia Support

Virginia support regarding divorce can be looked at two different ways.

1. Alimony or as it is sometimes called, Spousal Maintenance

2. Child support

When referring to spousal maintenance or alimony, Virginia support can be either temporary or lasting.

It can also be paid in a onetime lump sum, division of assets, or in monthly installments.

Either way, there are several ways to diminish your Virginia support responsibility.

To take advantage of the system, you need to understand how the system really works in Florida.

Alimony in Virginia can be set at the discretion of your county judge in Family court if you and your ex can’t reach an agreement.

When it comes to determining alimony, disposable income is a key aspect. Disposable income is classified as your total income less taxes and required living expenses.

What income remains once your taxes and living expenses are paid is known as "disposable income".

This variance between yours and her disposable income establishes whether or you pay alimony and the amount.

Essentially the bigger the disposable income gap, the more you’ll pay, so you want to do whatever you can to reduce or even eliminate this difference.

There are right and wrong ways to achieve this, so it’s vital to know how the system works and use a proven strategy sure to get the results you desire.

Virginia Support when referring to child support is a different matter. Unlike alimony, Child support is not up to the discretion of a judge, but calculated using guideline formulas.

Very little is subject to analysis, so disposable income is not a factor in the decision.

What you ultimately pay in child support is computed using Virginia guideline formulas based your income, her income, the number of your children, and the amount of time you spend each month with your kids.

Factors excluded from calculating child support in Virginia are your expenses, her expenses, and the children's principal costs.

Please note that additional expenses like day care and medical expenses are typically added to the guideline support amount.

Here’s an illustration, should your child need medical treatment, such as braces, which is not covered by medical insurance, the expense for those braces will be included in regular monthly support payments.

Expect to pay roughly speaking half of these “additional” expenses.

When parents agree on a set child support amount without going to court, judges consent to this total.

Parents often reach agreements without court involvement. If however you and the mother of your child cannot agree on child support, a judge will use the Virginia child support guidelines to determine your child support payment.

Whatever your Virginia Support fears are, child support or alimony, you must have a strategy to achieve the results you want.

You should do everything possible to minimize the support you’ll have to pay your wife and there are proven strategies to help you accomplish this.
