Is PSS the same as Alimony?


#1

Is post-separation support considered alimony? The reason I ask is because my pre-nuptial agreement contains a waiver of all rights to alimony. Does that include PSS, or is PSS still on the table?

Post-separation support is like temporary alimony. The differential is made due to the fact that a court cannot award alimony until there has been a determination of equitable distribution. In my opinion your agreement waives your right to any alimony, temporary or permanent.
