Spousal Maintenance: Financial resources

The court should consider "the financial resources of the party seeking maintenance, including separate or community property apportioned to him or her, and his or her ability to meet his or her needs independently, including the extent to which a provision for support of a child living with the party includes a sum for that party." RCW 26.09.090(1)(a). "In considering a party's future earnings capacity, a trial court may consider the health, age, vocational training and work history of the party." In re Marriage of Rockwell, 141 Wn. App. 235, 248, 170 P.3d 572 (2007).
