Phoenix Alimony Attorney

Divorce Lawyers Serving Scottsdale, Paradise Valley & The Greater Phoenix Area

In Arizona, spousal maintenance, also called alimony or spousal support, can be complicated. It refers to payments made by one spouse to the other during divorce proceedings and/or on an ongoing basis following divorce or legal separation. There are statutes in place to determine who will pay and how much, but most of these factors are not as clear cut or objective as those used to determine child support.

The factors used to determine spousal maintenance include:

  • Length of marriage, though no state-mandated minimum exists
  • The couple’s standard of living during marriage
  • Prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, if any
  • Financial and personal situations of each spouse
  • Earning potential or ability of each spouse
