Being ordered to pay a former spouse each month can be stressful for some in Ohio. However, it is common for a court to make a spousal support decision when a marriage ends in divorce. The time and amount of the payments varies depending on many factors.
In one recent case that may be of interest to our readers in Ohio, a woman in a divorce was ordered to pay her former husband $1,300 per month in spousal support. This is because she earned a higher income than her ex-husband. When the marriage ended, she began to make the payments, eventually paying him $22,000.
