Alimony Breakeven

Negotiate > More Alimony Tools > Alimony Breakeven

This screen may be called “Spousal Support Breakeven” or “Maintenance Breakeven,” depending on the most common terms in your state.

This screen shows the amount of alimony that would be needed to get the recipient to a point where all sources of income, including child support and alimony, exactly cover all expenses and taxes.

Please note that this is different from the “income after tax” number that you will see on the Income Summary and other reports.

The “income after tax” number shows income after-tax but before living expenses such as mortgage, food, rent, children’s expenses, and so on.
