Alimony is the legal term for money one spouse or former spouse may be required to pay the other spouse during or after divorce to provide for the support of that spouse. Oklahoma law requires that spousal support be awarded for a specific period of time and be set forth as a specific sum. The amount and duration of the award are based primarily on the need of the recipient spouse and the paying spouse’s ability to pay. Oklahoma courts may also consider:
If spouses are in the midst of divorce or legal separation, a spouse who can demonstrate a need for support may be eligible for temporary spousal support or temporary attorney’s fees while the divorce case continues. MMSR Law can ably assist clients in temporary spousal support and post-divorce support matters.
Temporary support is generally addressed at the time of the hearing on temporary orders in which the parties ask the court to set the ground rules which will govern the parties’ relationship until the divorce can be finalized.
