It is neither 15% nor 25%. An Ostler-Smith type calculation for spousal support is far more complicated than that, and there are many legal arguments to make in your favor. I strongly suggest that you spend the money to hire an experienced family law attorney to represent you at the support hearing, which may save you money in the long run. In the meantime, I am including links below which may be of some help. Good luck.
