Support – Alimony/Spousal Support and Child Support

As part of the divorce process the court may award alimony or spousal support.  The purpose of alimony or spousal support is to ensure there are no unfair economic effects on one party once the divorce is final.  This is usually the case if one party makes significantly more money than the other.  For instance, if one party stayed home for child care while the other worked full time there would likely be alimony awarded to the party who stayed home.

Child support is an ongoing payment made to support children of a divorce.  It typically is made from the parent with minority custody to the parent with majority custody.
