There are a variety of components that can be involved in a divorce case.
One of these is the issue of alimony.
Alimony is a two-pronged test in which the court will analyze one party’s ability to pay and the other party’s need for financial support.
A number of factors can affect your right to alimony, including your standard of living during your marriage, the length of the marriage, your age, contributions which you have made to the marriage, your spouse’s career and earnings ability, and of course, responsibilities you have to minor children.
Alimony is a function of not just how much financial support you will receive, but also for how long the necessary support will be ordered.
