Resolving Questions Related To Spousal Support
Spousal maintenance (also referred to as spousal support or alimony) is often one of the more difficult aspects of resolving divorce cases. The court has the discretion to award spousal support to a spouse, where it is necessary for a spouse to meet their reasonable needs. This payment is separate from child support, though it does impact the amount of child support (a parent who pays spousal maintenance pays less child support than they otherwise would).
The court considers a number of factors when making this determination, including the lifestyle of the parties during the marriage, the duration of the marriage, the income and earning potential of each individual spouse, and the division of property between the spouses.
