Do all divorces or separations involve spousal support?

No, this is a common misconception. Only about ten to fifteen percent of all divorces or separations have any sort of spousal support as part of the final divorce judgment or decree. You may think most do involve spousal support since those divorces that do involve spousal support are typically litigated. Since they are litigated (decided in a court room), it is not uncommon for them to be in the news, especially when celebrities are dissolving their marriages.
