Spousal support, also called alimony, is money paid to one’s spouse for his or her support. The court considers the following factors in awarding spousal support:
A judgment of divorce must either award spousal support, expressly reserve the question, or state that neither party is entitled to spousal support.
Spousal support may be modified on a showing of a change in circumstances that warrants modification unless the parties specifically waive modifiability.
Spousal support is usually paid through the office of the Friend of the Court. The Friend of the Court may help resolve post-judgment disputes about spousal support.
