The purpose of spousal support
A claim for Maintenance (Alimony) does not arise in every divorce case. Maintenance (Alimony) may be appropriate where one of the spouses gave up working in order to maintain the house. In that case, Maintenance (Alimony) is designed to allow the nonworking spouse the opportunity to get back on their feet after the divorce. Calculating an amount of Maintenance (Alimony) takes into account the following things:

  • The financial status of the parties.
  • The length of the marriage.
  • The needs of the parties.
  • Present and future earning capacity of each spouse.
  • The age, physical, and mental condition of each party.
  • Any agreement, such as a prenuptial agreement, between the parties

Maintenance (Alimony) is not automatically awarded, it must be sought. Additionally, an award of Maintenance (Alimony) can take many shapes. The payments may be permanent, temporary, a lump sum, or spread out.
