Spousal maintenance – also called spousal support or alimony – is something a spouse can obtain in a divorce case. Usually, this is the most heavily litigated part of any divorce case, due to the very subjective laws that control how and when it is awarded, but the consequences can be far-reaching. Spousal maintenance is usually all about setting a newly-divorced spouse up for success, so they can rehabilitate themselves and get a job that will allow them to support themselves. Child support, on the other hand, is exactly what you expect: support one parent pays to the other for the benefit of their mutual child(ren). Child support cases can be brought on their own – without involving parenting time or legal decision-making rights – but the other side will almost inevitably fight back by demanding parenting time and decision-making rights if they’re going to be asked to pay for a child. Child support cases are sometimes initiated by the Department of Economic Security (DES) if one parent is receiving state benefits but isn’t receiving child support.
