Arkansas Divorce Alimony


The Arkansas divorce alimony is based on the amount of financial resources available for both the spouses. The extent of need of the money for one spouse and the ability to pay the hefty amount by the other is taken into account. Though the Arkansas alimony laws does not acknowledge the marital misconduct while determining alimony, but if the receiving spouse has committed adultery that has led to the dissolution of the marriage, he or she is not entitled to claim for the money from his or her counterpart.

Alimony is rarely awarded in Arkansas as both the spouses are generally financially stable enough to meet up their own expenses. Even if alimony is granted most of the alimony paid are on a temporary basis. Alimony can be provided in the form of property asset or as a lump sum amount to the receiving spouse. The following are the kinds of alimony that can be granted by the court of Arkansas.

Permanent Alimony The permanent alimony is very rarely awarded and it gets easily terminated if the receiving spouse dies, remarries or starts staying with another partner. But there are certain conditions under which the receiving spouse can continue to enjoy the provision of alimony even if he or she is cohabiting with another individual.

Lump Sum Alimony - The lump sum alimony is paid to the individual keeping in mind the wellbeing of the receiving spouse in the near future. The money is paid once only instead of paying on a periodic basis.

Temporary Alimony In most divorce cases the temporary alimony is granted by the court. The temporary alimony is paid at equal intervals. The judge decides the time span up till which the alimony is to be paid. The alimony can be paid for months or several years depending upon the financial necessity of the receiving spouse.

Rehabilitative Alimony The rehabilitative alimony is actually a modified form of temporary alimony. The alimony is also temporary in nature but is granted when the money is solely used by the receiving spouse to complete his or her education or to make oneself skillful enough to be economically self-sufficient.

According to Arkansas Code of Title 9 from the Chapters: 12-312, the spouse can no longer be benefited by the alimony if he or she remarries, gets into a relationship that is equivalent to remarriage and begets children with the partner even if not remarried.
