How Does Alimony Work In Connecticut?


  • In Connecticut, either party can request alimony.
  • Alimony is based upon many circumstances including the earning capacity of the parties and the ability to acquire future assets.
  • The rule of thumb is that alimony is for ½ the length of the marriage.  The amount would be based upon what is needed to equalize the income of the parties and what the party is short in terms of being able to pay the expenses for the lifestyle that they have been accustomed to.
