There are also different types of alimony that may apply, depending on your situation. It could be temporary (just during the divorce proceedings), short term (until the spouse is able to finish a degree, find a better job, etc.)
If permanent alimony is granted, there is no specific end date for payments. In many cases, it will be granted until a) one of the two spouses dies or b) the recipient remarries or cohabitates with another person on a conjugal basis.
