What is Spousal Maintenance?
Alimony, also referred to as "spousal maintenance," payments are often ordered from one party to the other after a divorce. This is to help the supported party maintain the way of life to which he or she was accustomed during the marriage. There are multiple factors the judge will consider when determining the amount and duration of spousal support, such as contributions by each party to the marriage, the earning capacity of each party, and the amount for vocational training of the supported individual.
How Long Does Alimony Last?
Alimony is paid until the other spouse has a way to support him or herself. The agreement may not have a termination date. If this is the case, the alimony payments will be paid indefinitely until the court determines payments are no longer required. Typically alimony ends when the supported spouse remarries or developed the necessary skills to support themselves. According to Indiana law, alimony ends when the individual receiving support remarries.
