3 Kinds Of Alimony
When you get divorced, you may be ordered to pay alimony to your former spouse. There are different kinds of alimony that your former spouse may request or that the judge may order. Which one gets ordered depends on a lot of things, including your income and earning potential, your spouse's income and earning potential, and whether or not there are children that will be affected by the divorce. Alimony is separate from child support.
