The Obligation to Pay Alimony
Alimony is almost always an issue in divorce. Most commonly, alimony arises in term marriages in which one party has stayed at home to raise a family and the other has worked throughout the marriage. The working party can expect to pay alimony to the stay-at-home party. Alimony is even a factor when both parties are employed, but one earns a higher salary than the other. Further, there are many types of alimony: permanent alimony, term alimony, rehabilitative alimony and remunerative alimony.
Will you be required to pay alimony? Will you be entitled to receive alimony? In either event, in what amount and for what period of time? These questions require a close analysis of your situation and a firm grasp of the law. How long have you been married? Who has worked, for how long and what have they earned? Has one spouse put a career on hold to raise children? What is the lifestyle the parties enjoyed during the marriage? These are but a few of the questions that must be answered with the assistance of an experienced attorney.
