Understanding Alimony And Spousal Support In Alabama
Spousal support, sometimes referred to as alimony, is to provide for the receiving spouse and to ensure that they have the ability to maintain their standard of living. It can be temporary, rehabilitative or permanent.
In general, alimony or spousal support arrangements are influenced by:
- Length of the marriage
- Earning potential of each spouse
- Spousal contributions to the household
- Actions and causes leading to the divorce
- Age, physical health and ability
- Education and employment history
When a family law court establishes alimony, it also determines the amount of each payment, due dates and the length of time that alimony will be paid. Alimony can be a lump sum, paid for a specific time period, or can be until death or the remarriage of the receiving spouse.
