What Are The Types of Alimony / Spousal Maintenance?
There are three types of alimony that the court may choose to award in an Alabama divorce:
Alimony in gross: Sometimes used to settle property division disputes, such as one spouse buying out the other’s marital share of an interest in a privately held business.
Periodic alimony: Can be awarded to a spouse in a long-term marriage who has given up his or her career to care for the children and home.
Rehabilitative alimony: Typically used on a temporary basis while the recipient is in transition to self-sufficiency.
How Is Alimony / Spousal Maintenance Calculated?
There are a number of factors that the courts will consider:
- Ages of each spouse
- Earning capacity of each spouse
- General health of each spouse
- How long the spouses were married
- Income levels of each spouse
- Standard of living that was established during the marriage
We work hard to present the strongest case possible in support of our clients, and pursue every available option in an effort to resolve the matter in a way that provides you the most benefit.
