Alimony (otherwise referred to as Spousal Support), is one of the most difficult issues in many divorces and with the exception of custody one of the most contested issues until the very end. Alimony is the right to support derived from the marriage to assist one party to maintain their lifestyle as lived during the marriage. That being said, alimony is premised on many factors outside of simple income differentials, such as the length of the marriage, the roles of each party during the marriage, the actual lifestyle lived, and other factors that are simply more than a quick calculation of incomes. There are several categories of alimony such as limited durational alimony, rehabilitative alimony, open durational alimony (formerly known as Permanent Alimony), and reimbursement alimony.
