Alimony (spousal support) is a payment paid by one spouse to another after the couple separates or divorces. The net difference of each individual income is calculated and the spouse that has a higher income pays the other spouse to equalize their net income. The issue of who owes alimony who whom, and how much, is often contentious, and can be quite complicated. The amount owed from one ex-spouse to another will depend on a variety of factors including the net incomes of both, the length of the marriage, and who has custody of the child/children.
