Q: I'm headed for a divorce after 5yrand we have a 5yr old child together , will I have to pay child support and alimony
I don't want to have to pay for neither one. We both make around the same amount of money !
The short answer, without knowing much more, is that you will pay child support unless you have primary custody of the child. Alimony, either periodic or alimony in gross depends on a number of factors thus, it is impossible to know if you will have to pay it or not without all of the specifics.
I hope this helps,
A: Hello. Alimony depends on the facts of your marriage. Child support will largely depend on who has physical custody and the financial circumstances of the parents. Best of luck!
A: If she gets custody of the child you will certainly pay child support based on your income and her income. Alimony in a 5 year marriage is unlikely, given the changes in the law concerning alimony. There is no way for anyone to tell you how your case will be resolved concerning these issues without knowing all the facts. Get an attorney!
