What is Fair Spousal Support or Alimony?

The payment of support will also be set upon certain conditions for example:

  1. The spouse may only receive the support payments until job training or education is achieved.
  2. The spouse may only receive the support payments as long as they have not remarried.

    An alternative to making several support payments over a lengthy period of time, spouses will often times agree on a Lump-Sum Agreement, in which the receiving spouse is paid one larger sum of money at one time and it is considered a final payment.
