Spousal Support After Divorce

Spousal support, also known as alimony, consists of temporary monthly payments from one spouse to the other after divorce. Spousal support may be needed if one spouse does not have enough income or earning potential to support themselves. The payment amount and duration may be determined in court by a judge, based upon a number of factors. The court will consider the following topics and more:

  • Income levels and earning potential
  • Age and length of the marriage
  • Current child support orders
  • Education levels and employment history
