Spousal Maintenance

Spousal Maintenance

Spousal maintenance (aka spousal support, alimony) is a monthly payment of income to once of the spouses in a divorce that lasts for a specific amount of time. 

Washington law requires courts to consider the requesting spouse’s need for maintenance and the other spouse’s ability to pay. Maintenance should be no more than the requesting party needs, nor should it exceed the would be payor’s ability to pay. 

For more information on spousal maintenance, please refer to the TFL blog.
