During divorce proceedings, it is common for the higher-earning spouse to provide alimony payments to the other. This is known as temporary alimony and generally ends at the completion of the divorce. For alimony to continue after the divorce, the marriage must have lasted at least 10 years, and the receiving spouse must demonstrate that he or she needs the support. The maximum amount of post-divorce spousal maintenance allowed by the law is $2,500 per month for three years.

If a spousal support arrangement is agreed upon by both spouses in negotiation or mediation, the court is likely to accept it. If you are facing divorce and have questions about spousal support, our attorneys are here for you. Whether you were the primary wage earner in the marriage or are seeking to receive spousal support, we will offer you sound legal guidance and determined advocacy in your spousal support matter.
