Properly calculated alimony can be critical to the financial success of both spouses’ households following a divorce. It can be temptation during a divorce to shortchange negotiating things like alimony in an effort to try and streamline the process. Many people become overwhelmed and believe their anxieties will be resolved if they forego serious discussion on issues that their spouse may be rejecting, such as alimony, despite the critical value and necessity that alimony plays to the post-divorce stability of both parties’ households.

To successfully enter the next chapter of your life, you need to ensure that alimony is a part of the discussion in your divorce. Alimony is not appropriate in all cases, but when it is applicable, it is often indispensable towards ensuring that the supported spouse can sustain a lifestyle post-divorce that is reasonably commensurate with the marital lifestyle.


The court will look at a number of factors to determine if alimony is appropriate in your case and, if so:

• What form your alimony would take.
• What amount of alimony you would receive.
• How long would you should receive alimony.
