Indiana Alimony Lawyers

In Indiana, spousal maintenance can also be referred to as alimony or spousal support. All of these terms refer to the ability of the court to order payments from the financially independent party to the financially dependent party. Based on factors such as education, earning potential, age and work history, the court can award indefinite spousal maintenance or temporary spousal maintenance.

  • Temporary maintenance: Often, the court will find that one party requires financial support for a finite amount of time. This support can be used to pay bills while additional education or job training is completed. Once the financially dependent party has completed the training necessary to attain a sufficient job, the support will end. Typically, temporary maintenance lasts three years or less from the date of the divorce decree.
  • Indefinite maintenance: This is not permanent support, but the court has determined that a period longer than three years is necessary. Typically, the court will make this determination based on the mental or physical incapacity of the party. Likewise, if he or she is a custodial parent of a special needs child, the support can be determined to be indefinite.
