Alimony is an important part of the divorce proceedings. After going through a divorce, court can award alimony to one spouse. Once the judge has come to a decision in determining the eligibility of a spouse, it will then be determined how much support will be paid, for how long, and the method of making payments. Each spouse’s ability to provide for their own minimum reasonable needs will be reviewed as well as any property obtained in the divorce agreement.
