Will a court order spousal support in my situation?

An Ohio court will look at a number of factors in deciding whether to award spousal support, including the length of the marriage; each spouse's earning capacity, age, and physical and mental condition; the standard of living the couple had during marriage; and so on. The court will also consider whether one spouse has limited income potential or career possibilities due to family responsibilities and whether the spouse with custody of the children will also be able to seek work outside the home.
