Spousal Maintenance (Alimony)
When going through a divorce, one of the first questions, after questions about custody, are questions about spousal maintenance or alimony. These questions are important because a divorce effectively divides the assets while doubling the costs because there are now two households to maintain. This can be stressful where both parties can feel like they are being asked to make unreasonable sacrifices by the other party.

Alimony, in its construction, was designed to protect individuals who have become financially dependent upon another to remain viable in the case of a divorce. There isn’t typically an award given when the incomes are more or less equal. Spousal maintenance is not a given. It follows very specific rules and it is critical to have your rights protected when it comes to spousal maintenance.
When the incomes are extremely out of balance, an award can be made, but this award can vary as circumstances change for the individuals involved in the case. There can be an increase in support or a decrease in support depending on factors of the case.
