Unlike child support which is very objective and calculated with a state-created calculator, alimony is extremely subjective and the state does not use a calculator to determine how much alimony should be paid, if any.
The obligated spouse will usually not have to pay alimony for a period of time longer than the time the marriage lasted. For example, if the parties were married for 5 years then the longest the obligated spouse would have to pay alimony for would be 5 years.
