I need help to come up with a fair dollar number for temporary spousal support to ask my husband. He moved out in Feb. and has filed for legal separation. It is a long term marriage,25 years, with no young children.
Please suggest a dollar amount for temporary spousal support payments with the following facts.
Husband’s income: $435,000/year
Wife’s income varies from $12000 to 65,000/year (contract worker). My income has always been $1000/month for the last 8 years until early 2017. Apr 2017, I was hired as a contract worker in a Hollywood production to help with the actor’s language needs. This one-time high-paying gig will end, end of this year and I will go back to my $1000/month tutoring students.
I truly appreciate your help in suggesting a temporary spousal support number.
