Potential Alimony?


#1

Additionally, there are no children involved and no marital infidelity (as far as I know).


#2

When incomes are relatively close there is generally no alimony ordered.

Forum,

My wife and I in the beginning steps toward divorce. She makes slightly more in salary than I do. With a 2nd job, in my field, I make about $8,000 more annually than she does. She, without a 2nd job, is claiming a need for alimony based on this.

Is there merit to this?

Thanks for your reply.
