Divisible Asset


#1

I would like some clarification on alimony.

Disability is not a divisible asset, so how can spouses get alimony.

I heard there is a back door to getting alimony if you are on disability.

Is disability a divisible asset in divorce related property settles?

Disability is part of regular recurring income. Alimony awards are based on the reasonable needs creating a shortfall on the part of the dependant spouse, and ability of the supporting spouse to pay, which necessarily takes into account income from all sources.
