Alimony, also known as spousal support, is not an automatic or mandatory part of a divorce proceeding. However, it must beAlimony considered by the parties if one of the spouses requests it. The amount of alimony is usually based on the length of the marriage, one spouse’s need and the other spouse’s ability to pay. The legal right to alimony must be proven to the court through evidence by the requesting spouse.

Spousal support can be ordered permanently, for a shorter, specified period of time, or based on certain future events. It is usually preferable to obtain an out-of-court agreement on a spousal support figure and terms, as it gives the parties control over the arrangement, rather than having to accept court-ordered terms and conditions.
