Ohio law is very broad regarding spousal support and it can be interpreted very differently by each of Ohio's 88 counties or even each judge. It is based upon the need of one party and the ability to pay of the other party to maintain a similar life style that the party has become accustomed to. It also depends upon the length of the marriage and other factors.
