Forms for Spousal, Partner or Family Support

en español>

When a couple separates or divorces, one spouse or partner may need for the other to pay them a certain amount of support money each month. This is called "spousal or partner support," or "alimony."

  • If the couple can agree on the amount of spousal or partner support to be paid, and for how long, they can write down their agreement and get it notarized.
  • If they cannot agree on the amount of spousal or partner support to be paid, and for how long, they can ask the court to decide.
