IS SPOUSAL SUPPORT A LIFETIME ARRANGEMENT?
It depends; there are multiple ways a judge can order spousal support to be paid. One way is in a lump sum payment. Other times, a judge can order spousal support to be paid in monthly or yearly increments. Lifetime awards of spousal support are uncommon except in long-term marriages where the spouse requesting support is approaching or in the senior age range and does not have a way to support themselves. For the best possible outcome, you should hire a spousal support attorney to represent your interests.
Can I Change My Spousal Support Order?
Typically, a judge will only consider changing your spousal support order if new circumstances arise such as a change in custody or employment. If you are awarded a lump-sum payment, a judge will typically refuse to adjust said lump-sum payment.

HOW IS SPOUSAL SUPPORT DETERMINED IN MICHIGAN?
You are likely seeking out the help of an attorney because you and your ex-spouse don’t agree on the amount of spousal support you should receive. Under Michigan law, the court looks to a variety of factors to determine whether and how much spousal support to award you:
- The length of the marriage
- The occupation of each spouse
- The separation of assets to each spouse in the divorce
- The age of the parties
- Whether your spouse can pay child support
- The health of the spouses
- If there are other members of the family each spouse needs to support financially
- The behavior of each spouse during the marriage
A spousal support attorney can help you gather evidence to support each one of these factors. Most importantly, a spousal support attorney knows how to navigate the Michigan family law court system. You never know why a judge might deny your request for spousal support. To get the fairest award, you should hire a spousal support attorney to represent you.
