How can I get alimony from my spouse?

An award of alimony, or spousal support in Louisiana, is based on whether you have a need for support, whether your spouse has the ability to pay support regularly, and whether you are at fault in the breakup of the marriage. If it can be proven that you were at fault, then you may be prevented from getting an award of spousal support.
