Alimony is money paid by one spouse to the other after divorce, so that he/she will be able to maintain the standard of living that they experienced during the marriage. Alimony is awarded while the action of divorce is pending and is based on need, taking into consideration how long the marriage lasted, and the ability of the spouse to pay accordingly.
