Whether you are the one who is entitled to spousal support or whether you are the one who has to pay it, depends on if you are the higher-earning party. If you are the lower-earning party and your former spouse is in a position to support you financially, then you are entitled to spousal support. On the other hand, if you are the primary earner and you are in a position to support your former spouse, then you will have to pay spousal support.
