If you have been primarily dependent upon your spouse throughout your marriage, the thought of having to make it on your own after your divorce goes through may be downright scary. There are a lot of financial worries that come with the dissolution of marriage. Thankfully, spousal support may help ease some of those fears.
The award of spousal support, also known as alimony, is not the result in every divorce case. You need to qualify. If you do qualify, this may not be a benefit you get for very long.
