Alimony and Post Separation
- The parties were lawfully married
- The party seeking alimony is a dependent spouse
- The party from whom the dependent spouse is seeking alimony is a supporting spouse
- An order of alimony is equitable after considering the factors set forth in the statute, with those factors being the dependent spouse has insufficient resources to meet their needs and the supporting spouse has the ability to pay support to the dependent spouse
If the dependent spouse has engaged in an affair involving illicit sexual activity with a third party prior to the date of separation, they will not be entitled to alimony.
