Divorce court judges can usually prescribe one or a combination of the following forms of alimony or spousal support:
- Bridge-the-gap – can last up to two years to address short-term needs in the transition from married to single life
- Rehabilitative – awarded as needed to help a person get the education or training necessary to become self-supporting
- Durational – economic assistance for a set period of time when a permanent award is inappropriate
- Permanent – granted to allow a former spouse to maintain the standard of living established during the marriage. Permanent support continues until the receiving spouse’s remarriage or passes away
