Find a Divorce Lawyer
In the event of a divorce, dissolution or separation, one spouse may still have an obligation to financially support the other. This may be referred to as spousal support, alimony or maintenance. Spousal support may be ordered by the court to be paid on a temporary or permanent basis, depending on the laws of the state in which the divorce takes place. The amount of support may also vary, generally based on the length of the marriage and the age, health and earning capacity of each spouse. The standard of living enjoyed during the marriage may also influence the amount of spousal support awarded.
