Partner Support. When a couple separates or divorces, the court may order one
domestic partner to pay the other a certain amount of support money each month. This is
called "partner support."

The judge will consider many things when deciding what partner support to order.
Examples of some things the judge may consider are:

  • The length of the domestic partnership;
  • The age and health of each domestic partner;
  • How much income each can earn on their own;
  • The expenses of each domestic partner;
  • If there are minor children at home; and
  • The history of how the couple handled money during the domestic partnership.

Either domestic partner can later ask the judge to change the support amount if the
situation changes.
