In Michigan divorce, the divorce court may require either spouse to pay alimony. The Michigan divorce court will assign alimony, if it's considered necessary to conserve property owned by the spouses. Alimony may also be assigned if it's considered necessary to enable the receiving party to continue a certain standard of living. There may also be several factors influencing the amount of the alimony award. A Michigan divorce lawyer could explain how the circumstances of your divorce may affect Michigan alimony.
The Michigan divorce court can stop an alimony award if the receiving party remarries, unless there's a contrary agreement between the spouses that is specifically stated in the divorce settlement to continue the alimony payments.
