- With/Without Children
The question of support obligation often arises upon separation or divorce. Court will look to the history of the marriage as well as to who was at fault in its breakdown. Although alimony is no longer awarded to the wife as commonly as it once was, if either party has been placed in a financially dependent position by the marriage, the partner with the earning power or financial means may be ordered to contribute to the support of the financially dependent partner.
