Alimony was created by Connecticut General Statute section 46b-82. Alimony is not set by a formula but is determined by evaluating a dozen statutory factors including: the cause for the marriage, legal separation or annulment, your age, health, length of marriage, station (standard of living), occupation, amount and sources of income, vocational skills, employability, estate and needs of each party, and if there are young children at home, the desirability of finding employment.

Beginning for couples who divorce after December 31, 2018, alimony is not tax-deductible to the payor. Thus the payor of alimony will pay alimony from his or her net income.
