Spousal Support FAQs

How Long Is Spousal Support Paid in Arizona?

In Arizona, there is no set rule as spousal support is determined by a judge on a case-by-case basis. However, generally, how long a couple was married typically determines how long alimony will last.

How Long Do You Have to Be Married to Get Spousal Support in Arizona? 

In the state of Arizona, there is no minimum amount of time that a couple must be married to qualify for spousal maintenance. 

Does Alimony Stop When You Remarry?

Unless specified in another agreement or during the divorce, in Arizona, alimony payments terminate when the spouse receiving the spousal maintenance remarries. 

However, if the spouse that is required to pay spousal support remarries, they must continue providing alimony to their former spouse.

Does a Prenup Protect You From Alimony?

It can if the prenuptial agreement provides terms of spousal maintenance. This does include if the couple decides to waive their rights to alimony within the prenup.
