Fair and deserved restitution that makes sense

Alimony is a regular payment one spouse makes to the other for support during and/or after a divorce. Spouses may agree to alimony, or the court may order it if the spouses can’t agree. Alimony orders may be temporary or permanent. In South Carolina, the court has the discretion to make any alimony order that is appropriate, considering the couple’s circumstances.

What is alimony and when is it awarded?

Alimony is a regular payment one spouse makes to the other for support during and/or after a divorce. It can be awarded based on various factors, including the length of the marriage, the financial condition of the parties, and more.

South Carolina recognizes five types of alimony: periodic, lump sum, rehabilitative, reimbursement, and separate maintenance and support.

Whether you’re entitled to alimony depends on factors like the length of your marriage, financial contributions, and individual circumstances. Consulting with a family law attorney is advisable for a personalized assessment based on your specific situation and applicable laws in your jurisdiction.

You must request alimony during your divorce proceeding. You will not be allowed to request it after the divorce case is over.

  • You and your spouse can agree to include the length of your alimony arrangement in the court order.
  • If you do not agree, the judge will decide what is appropriate for your situation.
  • Indefinite alimony or permanent alimony lasts until either spouse dies or until the court determines that alimony is no longer appropriate.
  • Time-limited alimony (also called rehabilitative alimony) lasts for a limited time, as determined by the judge (for example, to allow the receiving spouse to obtain work experience or training necessary to become self-supporting).
