Alimony

Alimony

The term alimony refers to any kind of financial support that a former spouse gives the other. It may be short-time or permanent, given in one lump-sum or in monthly payments. The amount of alimony is determined on numerous issues, including the following:

  • Fault of either spouse
  • Expenses and earnings of each spouse
  • Length of the marriage
  • Age of each spouse
  • Physical, emotional, and financial condition of each spouse
  • Educational background of each spouse
  • Employment history of each spouse
  • Standard of living during marriage
