Spousal support is court-ordered payments that one spouse may be required to pay to another upon divorce in order to support the spouse with poor earning power while they obtain a job, further their education or are bringing in earnings not enough to maintain a semblance of their previous lifestyle.

In general, where the marriage has made it through more than a decade, the court will, at least reserve jurisdiction.
Because of this, even though there is no existing order for spousal support, the wife will be permitted to come back to court at a later time to request spousal support if the need arise.
