Alimony is a form of spousal support commonly ordered as part of any divorce case. Connecticut Superior Court judges are authorized to issue alimony orders pursuant to Connecticut General Statute §46b-82 which states in relevant part: “[i]n determining whether alimony shall be awarded, and the duration and amount of the award, the court shall consider the evidence presented by each party and shall consider the length of the marriage or legal separation, the age, health, station, occupation, amount and sources of income, earning capacity, vocational skills, education, employability, estate and needs of each of the parties and the award, if any, which the court may make pursuant to section 46b-81, and in the case of a parent to whom the custody of minor children has been awarded, the desirability and feasibility of such parent’s securing employment.”
