When a divorce occurs between a couple, alimony might be granted to one of the spouses depending on the situation and the years they have been married. Alimony is assigned when one of the parties is absolutely dependent on the other and have no way of sustaining him or herself. Alimony is a series of payments made with the purpose of financially helping the less fortunate party.

Once the alimony is set, it is extremely uncommon that changes are made. However, there is a possibility that it could happen. Any changes in situation of the individual could cause an increase, reduction or even termination of the payment. Three of the most common factors that cause these changes include:
- Voluntary unemployment
- Income changes
