Alimony (also called maintenance or spousal support) is an obligation to provide financial support to one's spouse after separation or divorce. It is established by divorce law or family law in many countries and is based on the premise that both spouses have an absolute obligation to support each other during their marriage (or civil union known as common-law marriages). Alimony is the continuation of this obligation to support after separation or divorce has occurred.
