Alabama Alimony and Spousal Support Laws

Under Alabama divorce law, alimony, which is also commonly referred to as  spousal support, is an allowance for the future support of the spouse who will be receiving alimony which is payable from the current earnings of the paying spouse. The purpose of alimony is to enable the dependent spouse, to the extent possible, to maintain the status that the parties had enjoyed during the marriage until that spouse is self-supporting or maintaining a lifestyle or status similar to the one enjoyed during the marriage.
