Spousal Support

In Arizona, certain spouses may be entitled to ongoing financial assistance from their former spouse after the divorce. Arizona courts refer to this as spousal maintenance, also commonly referred to as spousal support or alimony. Spousal maintenance can be requested by either party, regardless of gender. Eligibility is based on a number of factors, two of which include the length of the marriage and the ability of the requesting spouse to reasonably support him/herself.   No required amount or duration of spousal maintenance is provided for in Arizona law.  The court, in its sole discretion, may award whatever it feels is appropriate under the circumstances.
