Spousal maintenance, otherwise known as alimony, is often a hotly contested issue in divorce cases. Unlike child support, which is based on a set calculation, spousal maintenance is based on need of the person requesting spousal maintenance and ability to pay of the person paying spousal maintenance. In determining the amount and duration of spousal maintenance, there are eight different factors that courts will consider in making an award of spousal maintenance.
