Spousal support is when one spouse pays an amount necessary to support the other spouse. Spousal support can be a very complicated area and often requires the attention and analysis of an experienced professional. There are two types of spousal support: temporary and permanent. Temporary spousal support can be ordered when a divorce or legal separation case is pending. Permanent spousal support is often referred to as “long term support” but it does not mean that one person will receive spousal support for a long time or forever. Rather, permanent spousal support refers to support that is issued after the divorce or legal separation.
