Alimony supports are based upon the need of the requesting spouse for financial support to maintain the spouse customary standard of living before or during the marriage, and the ability of other spouse to pay.

Some other factor such as their respective age and physical and emotional health, the duration of the marriage whether the marriage was of short duration or long duration whether the spouses are self employed or not and common property involved is also taken into consideration.
