Frequently Asked Questions

My ex is asking for alimony. What are the chances it'll be awarded?

Alimony usually requires a 'long-term' marriage and that one spouse have given up employment opportunities in favor of supporting the marriage, like raising children or caring for the other spouse. If your marriage lasted less than 10 years, alimony is unlikely to be awarded. The likelihood of an alimony award also drops if your spouse was employed at any time during the marriage.
