Toughness and Support When You Need It Most

Does alimony still exist in Michigan?

Yes. Now called spousal support, it is still awarded in some divorces. Spousal support is intended to support the party receiving it until he or she gets the training or experience needed to become self-supporting. In general, the longer the marriage, and the less likely that one spouse is going to be able to support him- or herself, the more likely spousal support awarded by a judge is to be of long duration, perhaps even permanent. Parties can also agree on whether to pay spousal support, how much, for how long, and whether the award can be modified in the future.
