What To Know About Spousal Support

Spousal support, sometimes called alimony, is technically known as spousal maintenance in Indiana. It’s a court-ordered financial obligation from one spouse to another that continues after the end of the marriage.

Spousal maintenance isn’t a given; it’s awarded only in specific situations and for a limited time. Examples of cases that might warrant spousal maintenance include:

  • Incapacity: When one spouse can’t work due to physical or mental disability
  • Insufficiency: When one spouse lacks sufficient property or assets to provide for their own needs
  • Caregiving: When a spouse doesn’t work in order to care for a child with special needs
  • Career sacrifice: When a spouse has given up career opportunities to support the family or the other spouse’s career

Premarital agreements can also play a significant role in determining spousal maintenance.

Evaluating Your Case With A Clear Perspective

It’s understandable to feel that you’re owed something after the end of a long marriage. On the flip side, it’s also understandable to want all financial ties cut. In either situation, it’s important to get clarity on your options for addressing spousal maintenance.
