Spousal Support

Alimony and Spousal Support

discussion at a consultationIn some divorce settlements there may be cause for alimony, also called “spousal support”, to be paid by one spouse to the other for period of time after the marriage ends. Alimony is intended to ensure that the recipient retain a reasonable standard of living after the divorce that is not unfairly diminished due to the end of the marriage. For example, one spouse may be working, and thus have ongoing income, while the other was a stay-at-home parent and now has no source of income.

In Nevada, alimony is supposed to be “just and equitable.” Alimony considerations include such factors as the length of the marriage, each spouse’s financial situation, education and prior career, health, age, earning capacity and other factors.
