Do all divorces involve alimony?

No. Alimony is based on many factors that the law requires a judge to consider; such as length of marriage, education of the spouses, employment and income of each spouse, age, health and other related factors. In some instances, husbands can obtain alimony from wives. Also, there are many different forms of alimony, based on the different circumstances of each marriage. And finally, a judge is given wide discretion to determine if one spouse is in need of alimony and the other spouse has the ability to pay alimony.
