Alimony and Spousal Support
Alimony or spousal support is a financial award—lump sum and/or monthly payments, which seeks to prevent a divorced spouse from suffering a dramatic decrease in his or her standard of living. When one spouse has a considerably higher earning capacity than the other, it makes sense to seek alimony or spousal support. However, it is not intended to impoverish the payor spouse. Moreover, alimony allows the lower-income spouse or the spouse who has not been in the workforce for a significant period of time, a certain level of financial support and security until he or she can become financially independent.
