When a judge must consider whether to award someone alimony, they have to think about a number of issues. These include considerations such as the length of the marriage and the income of each spouse. They will also reflect on each person’s role in the relationship, such as whether one spouse was a homemaker. It’s important for them to consider the standard of living the couple enjoyed. Alimony can help to maintain that level of living for both parties. The judge will also take into account the financial situation of each spouse, as well as their health. Your divorce lawyer will use his/her experience to protect your interests.
Types of Alimony
Permanent Periodic Alimony
One of the types of alimony you can seek is permanent periodic alimony. It is intended to help one of the ex-spouses keep the standard of living he/she experienced while married.
This type of alimony helps to repair your finances if you had to sacrifice your career for your marriage.
Shorter marriages might result in durational alimony being awarded. It will occur for a short time so an ex-spouse can readjust.
This form of alimony may not last as long as other types. It is intended to help someone adjust to their new life after divorce. It can be a one-off payment or last a few months.
Another short-term form of alimony, this type is awarded during the divorce, not after it. It helps a party to weather the financial hardship a divorce can cause. It can still be followed by alimony after the divorce.
Lump Sum Alimony
Lump sum alimony pays out a single amount in one payment. This can be included in the division of assets.
There are several types of alimony that can be awarded to a spouse in a divorce. Alimony usually occurs to help one spouse maintain his/her standard of living for a particular period.
