Spousal Maintenance or Alimony

Under some circumstances, the court can order one spouse to pay money to help support the other spouse. The award of spousal maintenance is determined by the court or agreement of the parties. In determining the appropriate amount and length of spousal maintenance, the court considers the financial resources of the party seeking maintenance (including the consideration of child support paid to the party requesting spousal maintenance), the time necessary for the party requesting maintenance to acquire sufficient education or training to enable the party seeking maintenance to find appropriate employment, the standard of living established during the marriage or domestic partnership, the length of the marriage or domestic partnership, the age and physical condition of the person seeking spousal maintenance as well as the ability of the other spouse to pay spousal maintenance while meeting his or her own needs.
