Alimony and child support -what to expect

Dear all, we have came down to conclusion that we will divorce.
We have 3 kids 20, 19 and almost 2yo. We are married for 20 years and live in Switzerland for 10. My wife does not work but i do. We want to divorce on mutual agreement.

What can i expect for a) alimony for my wife and b) child support for 3 kids ?
Please share your experience.

I would highly appreciate English speaking lawyer contact in Basel or Aarau, who was good in making settlement.

Re: Alimony and child support -what to expect

We need to know how the older children are being educated/ employed / type of job training...

Roughly: the children are each paid fixed amounts, depending on their ages and length of schooling/training. Then the rest of your income is shared between you and your wife.

The money you pay your family is tax free, but they must pay tax on their income, after their personal tax allowance etc etc.

After about 8 more years your wife will be expected to work again, once the youngest is old enough.
