Understanding the Factors that Determine Alimony Payments

Last updated 5 years ago

Alimony is a support payment that is made from one person to his or her spouse when the parties separate or divorce. It can be determined between the parties or calculated and ordered by the court.

The attorney in this video explains that the amount of alimony is often determined by the income disparity between the two parties. The court will also consider the needs of the parties. Finally, the court will look at your budgets, including income, rent, food, utilities, and other expenses.
