Spousal support is often thought of as payments from a husband to his wife so she can sit around all day and eat chocolate bon-bonís. Sadly, most litigants who seek spousal support need the money in order to simply make ends meet. Perhaps during the marriage one partyís career was sacrificed in order to stay home with the children while the other party assumed the role of primary bread winner.
Post-Separation Support (PSS) is defined as spousal support to be paid until the earlier of either the date specified in the order of post-separation support, or an order awarding or denying alimony.
Alimony means payments for the support and maintenance of a spouse, either by lump sum or on a continuing basis. Alimony is paid by the "supporting spouse" to the dependent spouse. The general rule is that a spouse is dependent when he or she makes less money than the other spouse.
