What Is Alimony?
Alimony, or spousal maintenance, is the money that one spouse pays to the other spouse during and after a divorce. These payments are decided by the court and are not meant to last forever. They serve to help the supported spouse gain financial independence.
How Long Does Alimony Last in Kansas?
Courts generally grant the following types of alimony payments:
- Temporary Payments: these are granted during divorce proceedings
- Short-Term Payments: these are granted for a limited time after a divorce
- Long-Term Payments: these are granted when couples have been married for a long time
Even long-term payments have an end date – that can either be a previously decided on date, or when an event takes place, such as the supported spouse getting remarried. Courts may not order maintenance payments to continue beyond 121 months unless one of the spouses files a motion for that.

What Is Alimony Based On?
Courts consider a variety of factors when evaluating an alimony claim, including:
- The standard of living during the marriage
- Each spouse’s financial standing at the time of the divorce
- The age, emotional health, and physical health of each spouse
- One person’s need for financial support, and the other party’s ability to pay
Over time, alimony payments can be challenged, modified, or terminated if a party has experienced a substantial change in their income or personal situation. In each circumstance, having the proper Wichita alimony lawyer in your corner can make the difference in your case.
