- Length of marriage, ages of spouses at time of marriage and divorce
- Physical and emotional condition of each spouse
- Standard of living established during marriage
- Marital and non-marital properties of each spouse
- Existence and extent of support obligation from a prior marriage
- Child Custody
- Current and anticipated earnings & expenses of each spouses
