Missouri law may require spousal support, also called alimony or maintenance, in some cases of divorce or separation. The amount and duration of alimony for your ex-husband or ex-wife is determined through a two-part test.
Two-Part Test To Determine Alimony
Part I involves evaluating whether the marital asset division in the divorce or separation is sufficient to meet the ex-spouse’s continuing needs. Part II involves evaluating if the ex-wife or husband is capable of meeting their own financial needs. Spousal support and maintenance is separate from child support; alimony can be awarded in addition to child support or if there are no children involved.
