Spousal Support, also known as alimony, is the payment of monies from one spouse to another to assist in their financial support. There are no set guidelines for spousal support as it is determined on a case by case basis by taking into consideration such things as the length of the marriage, the age of the parties, their educational background, the health of the parties and prior standard of living. Spousal support can be modifiable or non-modifiable.
