In our state, a dependent spouse is someone (whether husband or wife) who is actually substantially dependent upon the other spouse for his or her maintenance and support, or is substantially in need of maintenance and support from the other person. A dependent spouse may receive post-separation support (temporary alimony paid for a specified limited duration of time) or alimony by agreement between the parties or by court order. Ideally this agreement is worked out by the two parties with the assistance of their legal representatives.
