Alimony is most often provided as a monthly payment from the high-earning spouse to the lower-earning spouse. The amount should be sufficient to allow the supported spouse to maintain a lifestyle similar to that enjoyed during the marriage. When creating an alimony agreement, you need to cover:
- Amount of alimony
- Duration of alimony
- Payment schedule
- Cost of living adjustment
If you cannot reach a fair agreement on your own, you will have to go to court. A judge will base your alimony on the result of our alimony calculator but adjust the amount according to the specifics of your unique case.
