One of the factors that a Judge looks at when determining alimony is the the financial resources of each party, including the nonmarital and the marital assets and liabilities distributed to each.
For example, if both parties have approximately the same income and assets at the time of the divorce, an award of lump sum or periodic alimony may not be appropriate.
On the other hand, in a long-term marriage where one spouse has twice the income of the other, awarding alimony may be appropriate.
In addition to this factor, there are numerous other factors that a court looks at in determining the type of alimony awarded, the amount of alimony, and the length of time alimony must be paid for a particular case.
