What's a fair alimony payment?
We were married for 6 years and are now getting divorced. We have 2 children and she has been a stay at home mom for the whole time. She does have a B.S. in business administration, but has never used her degree.
We have settled on everything except alimony. I make ~$7700/mo (gross). Child support is set based on the guidelines, which comes to about 25-31% of my gross each month.
Should I be providing much more in terms of alimony? Would a judge order me to pay any more aside from potentially providing her with health care? What would be a 'fair' amount considering I will have to maintain a residence of my own to support 2 children as I will get them during summers and alternating holidays?
