Alimony is the money that you pay to your soon to be ex or ex-spouse. This money is being paid to cover basic needs and/or to accommodate a certain lifestyle established during the course of the marriage. Unlike child support, there is no formula to calculate alimony. A court has discretion when determining the amount of alimony to be paid and/or the length of time for which it shall be paid. The court may consider the adultery of either spouse and the circumstances thereof in determining the amount of alimony, if any, to be awarded.
