NBA Star Derek Fisher to pay $1.5 Million a year in support to his ex-wife
Ex-NBA star Derek Fisher will pay $1.3 million a year in spousal support and $15,000.00 a month in child support to his former spouse.
According to reports, Derek Fisher has agreed to pay his ex-wife $109,000 in spousal support, along with $15,000 per month in child support for their 9-year old twin boys.
They will also destroy the frozen embryos as part of their divorce settlement.
How is spousal support calculated?
Among other factors the Courts look at:
- how much money each person could reasonably earn every month
- what the reasonable expenses are going to be for each of them, and
- whether an alimony award from one to the other would make it possible for each to go forward with a lifestyle somewhat close to what the couple had before they split—known in divorce law as “the standard of living established during the marriage.”
