Alimony is the payment of a court-ordered amount of money from one ex-spouse to the other as the result of a divorce or dissolution of a marriage. Alimony is sometimes referred to as spousal support. This practice is based on the idea of marriage as a contractual agreement of spouses to support each other. From this perspective, the courts view divorce as an annulment of a contract. Just as in a corporate setting, a change in a contractual relationship often includes compensation.
If you are in the process of divorce or are considering divorce, it is important that you understand all of the potential ramifications. An experienced alimony lawyer can provide the information and representation you need throughout the divorce process and thereafter.

Factors That Determine Alimony
Alimony can be a complex process of determining an appropriate amount of financial support in the wake of a divorce. There are several factors that influence this process and many of them are specific to each case. Below are a few common factors that determine how alimony is decided upon:
- Length of marriage
- Individual income of each ex-spouse
- Age of each ex-spouse
- Relative income of one spouse to the other
- Health of the ex-spouses
- Future potential income
- Fault in divorce
Each of these factors will vary in importance with each individual divorce case. An experienced Denton alimony attorney can provide more information on how these factors could affect your situation.
