Alimony

Determining Spousal Support

An alimony award, sometimes referred to as spousal support, is made when one spouse has a financial need and the other has an ability to pay alimony. Other factors considered by the Court in deciding on whether to award alimony and how much to award include but are not limited to:

  • Respective incomes of the parties
  • Relative education levels
  • Relative health
  • Standard of living of the parties
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Retirement benefits
  • Tax consequences of an award
  • Other factors that the court deems relevant and equitable
