Spousal support is a legal obligation that compels a spouse to pay his/her former spouse for the maintenance and support upon divorce.

The authority to award support rests with the family and the circuit court in West Virginia Alimony law.

Spousal support is of 4 forms. They include:

  1. the Permanent spousal support,

  2. temporary spousal support,

  3. rehabilitative spousal support and

  4. spousal support in gross (Lump-sum).
