How am I expected to get a job after ending my marriage of over 35 years?

Age is a factor in the determining of spousal support. If your age is such that the possibility of attaining a job or professional position is minimal, or if your age is such that you could only find a minimum wage, part-time job, then a judge may consider the awarding of permanent maintenance. The financial difficulty of divorcing at such an age is often very overwhelming. You often hear people say, " How could those two to still be married after all these years", and many times the truth is that they would have problems surviving financially without one another.
