Spousal support law refers to the legislation that regulates how financially disadvantaged individuals should be compensated in situations of separation and divorce. This body of law normally grants courts the authority to order one person to pay a certain amount of money to another. It may also restrict the terms and conditions that courts may impose on those orders. This type of law can greatly vary from one jurisdiction to another.

When married couples split up, there is a risk that one person may have an unjust financial advantage. Spousal support law is a body of legislation that is designed to make the separation of couples more equitable. Spousal support is often referred to as alimony. Both terms refer to funds that are paid by the individual who is in possession of the greatest amount of financial resources to the individual who suffers an economic disadvantage due to the termination of the relationship.
