What Is Spousal Support? What Is Alimony?
Spousal support is the temporary maintenance that one spouse provides to the other during the divorce process.
Alimony is the support that one spouse provides to the other after the divorce process is completed.
Spousal support and alimony are not necessarily connected, although they essentially serve the same purpose. They are both based on factors such as relative earnings, earning capacities and length of marriage.
