Following a divorce, the involved parties often encounter significant financial pressures. Many times, one spouse will need to provide monthly economic support for the other spouse in the form of an alimony payment. This may be by agreement or ordered by the court.

When constructing an alimony order, the court will examine a variety of factors, including the income or earning capacity of both spouses, the relative needs of the parties and the assets awarded to both spouses in equitable distribution. The court will also consider the reasonable living expenses of the spouse requesting alimony and examine the shortfall between income/earning capacity of that party and those reasonable expenses. When there are substantial changes in either party's income, it is sometimes necessary to seek modification of an existing order. Alimony issues become decidedly more complex when dealing with high-asset divorces. Income from securities, investments, pensions, business holdings and other sources must be taken into account to determine a fair amount of alimony.
