Spousal support (spousal maintenance, aka alimony)

Spousal maintenance, also commonly known as ‘alimony’, is when one spouse provides continued financial support in the form of payments after a marriage ends. The court and the attorneys look at several factors when determining what is appropriate for spousal maintenance and it is generally paid by the spouse who earns the healthier income.
