Alimony is monetary support the one spouse pays to another to maintain the receiving spouse’s standard of living. Alimony is subdivided into several categories: lump sum, rehabilitative, and permanent periodic alimony.

A party’s alimony award will terminate upon death of either party or upon remarriage of the receiving spouse.


Linda was an exceptional lawyer. This was a divorce from (Hell) and was drug out over more than a year. My Ex's lawyer actually quit. Linda was very professional yet had a really personal touch. She actually felt like a friend through this. I really am glad I chose your law firm and would recommend you to others, especially Linda.
