Alimony

Alimony is a term describing monetary support paid by one spouse to the other during or after a divorce proceeding. Various types of alimony exist. Including permanent periodic, durational, rehabilitative, bridge the gap, lump sum and temporary.

Alimony payments are not something that is part of every divorce process. Spouses must request the need for alimony, as well as establish the paying spouse’s ability to make the alimony payments. Spouses may agree to which form of alimony best suits the family or a court may order alimony to be paid to the recipient spouse.
