Alimony, or spousal support, is awarded following a divorce to limit any unfair economic effects to either party. Finances were most likely arranged with the two spouses working as a team, such as one taking a lower earning job to ensure time with family, child care, or support the higher-wage earning spouse.
After separation a spouse may need time to be able to support himself or herself at or near the standard of living. Many factors go into establishing a fair alimony award between a divorced couple including:
-the basic needs of the receiving spouse
-standard of living during the marriage
-length of time for spouse to develop skills to become financially independent
-age, mental and physical condition of each party
-length of marriage
-financial resources and the ability of the payer spouse to be able to may support payments and still support themselves
