HOW MUCH AND HOW LONG? SPOUSAL MAINTENANCE (ALIMONY) IN ARIZONA.
AUGUST 25, 2020 In a Divorce, a Court may choose to award Spousal Maintenance (formerly known as Alimony) to one of the spouses. The reasons the court may do this are varied but the general idea is fairness. For example, Spouse 1 is a stay at home parent who takes care of the parties’ children while Spouse 2 works full time, furthering his/her career and resume. Spouse 2 leaves the marriage with the benefit to their resume and earning ability while Spouse 1 does not. WARNING.
