How much Michigan spousal support will I receive?

There is no precise formula for determining the amount of spousal support that will be awarded because each situation is different. In Michigan, there are now two separate guidelines which take some of the above factors into consideration such as the age of the parties, the educational level of the parties, the length of the marriage, the number of children and who is their custodial parent, and the earnings of both parties. Most lawyers have software programs that incorporate these guidelines and "plug" the facts of each case into the software to get the probable recommended amount.
