When couples in Connecticut decide to pursue a divorce, alimony may be awarded to one spouse. In deciding whether or not to award spousal support, courts consider a variety of factors including the length of the marriage. As we've mentioned previously, permanent alimony may be granted if a couple was married for more than 25 years.
When people in Connecticut say "I do," they rarely expect that their marriage will end in divorce. However, divorce is a reality for many couples.
