Understanding Spousal Maintenance Laws in Arizona


Alimony, or spousal maintenance as it is referred to in Arizona, is the monthly amount of money that one spouse may have to pay the other during and after the divorce proceeding. Many factors are involved when it comes to awarding spousal maintenance.

Arizona Revised Statute § 25 – 319 sets forth the factors that the court must consider to determine whether an individual is entitled to spousal maintenance.

Factors the Court will consider when deciding spousal maintenance awards include:

  • Resources of the spouse seeking an award of spousal maintenance
  • Employment status and employment history
  • Earning ability
  • Reasonable needs
  • The spouses’ income disparity
  • Length of marriage
  • Age
  • Standard of living established during the marriage

The court will need to make three decisions in regard to an award of spousal maintenance:

  • Is a spouse eligible to receive spousal maintenance?
  • How much will the other spouse have to pay?
  • How long will the payments be required?
