Ensuring that any awarding of alimony, or spousal support as it is sometimes called, is appropriate can be a major issue in a divorce. Equally important is ensuring that the levels of alimony that are granted are proper given the circumstances of the divorce.
Alimony can be a vital tool for a spouse with limited financial resources. Each spouse comes out of a divorce needing to establish a new household. Alimony can help fill any gaps that might create financial difficulties for a spouse.
The court will look at various factors in determining whether or not to grant alimony and which levels of alimony are appropriate:
- Length of the marriage
- Income earning potential of each spouse
- Financial need
- Ability to pay
- Financial resources
