When determining alimony, the Court must consider the parties’ financial resources, including the marital and nonmarital assets and liabilities distributed to each, and all sources of income, including the income available to either party through investments of an asset held by that party.
If both parties have approximately the same income and assets at the time of the dissolution, 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 a clear need and the other spouse has the ability to pay, it would be appropriate for the Court to award permanent alimony.
