Proven Family Law Representation

Is alimony an issue between you and your divorcing spouse? Are you in need of fair spousal support in order to be able to transition through this difficult time? On the other hand, as the supporting spouse, perhaps you feel you are being taken advantage of by overpaying what you believe to be fair.

Alimony in Iowa

In many marriages, alimony (also known as spousal support) is ordered to maintain financial stability for the party with the lesser earning capacity. Alimony is separate from that of child support, which is also awarded by the court.

Iowa awards three different types of alimony based on the circumstances of the marriage.

The Iowa alimony categories include:

  • Traditional, for those marriages in which only one spouse worked and provided the bulk of the financial support for the family. It may be payable for life.
  • Rehabilitative, which is designed to enable the supported spouse to become educated or trained in order to return to the workforce. It is awarded for a short duration.
  • Reimbursement, which is awarded in short-duration marriages in which one spouse enabled the other to be educated or trained for career purposes.

The court will consider many factors when determining alimony, such as the length of the marriage, the ages and health of both spouses, the level of education or training or earning potential for the petitioning spouse, and more.
