Alimony, otherwise known as spousal support, is a monetary payment that one former spouse must make to the other one. Typically, alimony is awarded in cases where one spouse is reliant on the other for financial support. Alimony allows this individual to maintain his or her standard of living and reduces the financial stress he or she would feel otherwise. Alimony may be temporary or permanent, depending on the situation.
