What is alimony? When is it necessary?

Alimony payments are intended to supplement the receiving spouse’s income in efforts to help them adjust to the new level of income to which he or she will be held to after the divorce. Alimony payments are typically most applicable in divorces in which one spouse makes much more money than the other. In most cases, alimony payments cease once the divorce is final, however permanent alimony can sometimes be established. If permanent alimony is approved, the payment amounts are subject to change over time depending on the individual financial circumstances of the people involved.
