What Is Considered Long Term Spousal Support?

A marriage of ten years or more is considered long term by the state of Idaho.

In the late 1990s, the duration of spousal support was linked to the transition period from married life to unmarried life and are different in all cases.

The Idaho Legislation has a statute that says when permanent support is established at time of trial, it is an abuse of discretion for the court to set a future termination date if the marriage is of lengthy duration and that any marriage of ten years in duration is considered a lengthy marriage.

A recent appellate decision ruled that the duty of a supporting spouse to continue to work to support their ex-spouse ends at age 65 when they are eligible for retirement.
