Spousal maintenance, also referred to as “alimony” or “spousal support,” can be awarded as part of a divorce or legal separation. Generally speaking, it is intended to minimize the economic harm to the poorer spouse caused by the separation or divorce. Permanent spousal support is increasingly extremely rare, usually a transitional or temporary award is favored by the courts. It is also important to note that spousal support is not punitive even though it is commonly viewed that way.
