Divorce is a time of upheaval, even though it can also be the best solution for you and your soon-to-be-ex. One of the many ways that divorce can affect your life is in a financial manner. There will be costs associated with your divorce and there will be a new financial reality you will have to face as an individual when your spouse is no longer with you. So what considerations does the law make for this scenario?
Spousal support, or alimony, is a way that spouses can financially normalize after a divorce. Spousal support isn't included in every divorce, but if you qualify based on a number of factors, then you could end up paying or receiving this form of financial support.
