The family court looks at several factors to determine the amount of spousal support. One of the factors is any documented evidence of domestic violence. If the court finds that domestic violence has occurred, then it can reduce or terminate spousal support that would have been due to the offending party. The court can review whether or not there has been a conviction for domestic violence, any emotional distress on the victim as a result of domestic violence, protective orders issues, or past acts of domestic violence.
