In Missouri, alimony is called spousal maintenance. If you and your spouse are divorcing, you probably want to know if you will have to pay maintenance, if you will receive maintenance, and how long you will either pay or receive maintenance. Missouri law allows the court to grant spousal maintenance if the circumstances of the case make it necessary. The court will consider all of the information presented by the parties and determine an arrangement based on the circumstances of the parties for granting either permanent or temporary spousal alimony/maintenance.
