Alimony is a contribution to the cost of living. The right to alimony will normally be requested during divorce proceedings, although it is also possible to start a separate procedure to request alimony. To establish the alimony amount, the judge considers the financial situation of the person who will have to pay the alimony and the needs of the applicant (how much money is needed). Both (former) partners and/or children may be entitled to alimony.
