What is spousal support?

Spousal support, also know as alimony, is an amount paid by one spouse to help support the other spouse. There must be a showing that one spouse is in need of support and that the other spouse has the ability to pay the support. There are many rules about the amount of support that can be effected by other issues in the case such as child support and property division.
