What does poverty alimony mean?

It is the alimony that the spouse who will fall into poverty as a result of divorce can request from the other side in proportion to his financial situation, provided that the fault is not more severe.

In case of equal fault, alimony may be awarded. The judge cannot automatically rule on alimony. An explicit request is required for this. Both spouses can request alimony. The judge may order this alimony after investigating the financial situation of the spouses. In addition, alimony cannot be ruled for a period of time (such as 1 year, 5 years). In addition, divorced spouses can always request that this alimony be reviewed, increased, decreased or completely removed. Poverty alimony can be requested within the divorce case, or it can be requested as a separate case after the divorce decision.
