Alimony is also known as spousal support. Alimony, or the amount (in dollars, property, etc.) of spousal support that one spouse will provide to another during divorce or separation is determined by many factors that can include the length of the marriage, the support during the marriage, and is considered a continuation of that support to be provided after the marriage (or in some cases common law marriage) has ended.
Alimony exists under divorce law, but there are many factors involved. To accurately assess your current marital circumstances and/or pending divorce, you should seek the advice of a family law attorney.
