Alimony laws have changed a lot in recent years, but ultimately, decisions on alimony are still based primarily on the need of a spouse and the other spouse's ability to pay. Regardless of the need one spouse has, there will be no alimony if the other spouse lacks the ability to pay. A judge will not issue a ruling that leaves one spouse destitute after making payments to another.
There are a variety of different types of alimony and spousal support payment arrangements, including:
- "Bridge the gap" alimony — alimony capped at two years in order to help a spouse transition after a divorce
- Rehabilitative alimony — alimony that is designed to provide a spouse with financial aid as he or she attends school or other vocational training
- Durational alimony — alimony that is capped at the length of the marriage
- Permanent periodic — alimony that is paid until the receiving spouse remarries, dies or enters into a mutually supportive relationship
