The court may grant alimony to either party. There are different types of alimony that may be granted. Rehabilitative alimony is awarded for a temporary time period to allow one party to redevelop skills and financial independence. Durational alimony is awarded for a fixed number of years. Permanent alimony continues until the remarriage of the receiving partner or the death of either partner. Permanent, durational and rehabilitative alimony are usually paid on a periodic basis. The Court may also consider lump-sum alimony in which one partner pays a lump-sum payment of money or property to the other partner.
