Maintenance, Spousal Support & Alimony

Get the stability & financial support you need after a divorce with our family law lawyers

Alimony, or “spousal support,” is a payment from one spouse to another that helps to maintain the comfort, security, and wellbeing of one party.

Alimony’s purpose is to help each spouse maintain the same lifestyle they enjoyed during marriage; it’s meant to ease the transition from married life to single life. An alimony payment is generally paid in periodic installments, though in some cases it can be in the form of a lump sum.
