SPOUSAL SUPPORT

Payments made by one spouse to another after a divorce. Either spouse can be awarded support. Factors considered in bestowing spousal support include the age and medical condition of each party, the duration of the marriage, the standard of living during the marriage, and the financial resources and future earning capacity of each spouse. The court determines the type of alimony received and for how long it will be received.
