Monmouth County Temporary Alimony Lawyers
Alimony may be provided during and after divorce proceedings, as one spouse may require financial support from the other to maintain a reasonable standard of living. In cases where a divorce proceeding may prove significantly lengthy, the courts may award one spouse temporary alimony. This type of alimony is meant to provide spousal support during the course of a divorce case.
What Coverage Is Provided as Temporary Alimony?
Temporary alimony isn’t necessarily limited to required living costs. Unlike permanent alimony payments, temporary alimony is meant to upkeep a spouse’s accustomed standard of living during the legal divorce process. This means providing financial support for the following:
- Food costs
- Expenses tied to living arrangements
- Support for clothing needs
- Transportation expenses
- Luxury expenses that match the couple’s usual standard of living
Temporary alimony may be denied in cases where the court feels that the receiving spouse has sufficient assets to allow them to live comfortably through the divorce. Otherwise, these payments are commonplace as a means to help a spouse through the transitional period between the divorce and the possibility of receiving permanent alimony support.
