Alimony also known as spousal support or maintenance, is a payment to a spouse under separation or divorce instrument. It is a legal obligation from the divorce law to support a dependent spouse, whether wife or husband, for their maintenance and support. However, Alimony is not awarded if you and your spouse earn close to same amount or in short marriages.
For alimony to be awarded, the court has to determine if either of the party has a real need for alimony and if the other party is able to pay the alimony. Alimony award is not meant to leave the payer with less income than the recipient unless in exceptional circumstances which must be stated in court by a legal lawyer. The court also considers any relevant economic factors.
