Understanding the basics of alimony in a divorce

In order to have an understanding of how spousal support works, one should have a basic understanding of why courts consider granting or denying spousal support. In essence, the primary reason for exploring whether or not one of the spouses in a divorce should be granted alimony is to balance any potentially unfair economic effects on one spouse.

Post-divorce cohabitation impact on alimony payments

Most couples undergoing divorce hope to resolve their issues amicably without prolonged litigation. More than likely both parties want to move on with their life. Some issues they may face can range from child custody and support to spousal support or alimony. However, when it comes to alimony, the couple may have questions regarding who is obligated to pay it, what factors are considered, how much one will be ordered to pay, when, if at all, it should terminate, and how a subsequent new relationship will impact alimony payments.
