Alimony is money paid to a former spouse for his or her support. The law is applied equally to men and women. If a party has a need for a contribution to their support from their husband or wife who can afford to pay it, spousal support is going to be a factor in the case. The basic test is simple: What are the needs of the spouse seeking support and what is the ability of the other party to pay it.
If no alimony is awarded in the Final Judgment then any right to alimony is forever extinguished. As with many issues in a divorce case it is important to fully present your case the first time.
