Alimony is alive and well in Mississippi. There are multiple types of alimony, each with its own characteristics, and there are also forms of alimony known as hybrid alimony where the drafting attorney carves out each aspect of the alimony definition. The types of alimony recognized by our courts are permanent periodic alimony, lump sum alimony, rehabilitative alimony and reimbursement alimony.
After the equitable division of martial property, the final step the court must complete is a consideration of alimony. If the equitably divided marital assets will adequately provide for each party, no alimony should be awarded. If one party is left with a deficit after the marital property is equitably divided.
Mississippi decides property division based on equitable distribution, and they are the only state in the U.S. that takes the name on the title of property into account.
