  • It should depend on how long the marriage was and how much each persons income is. I dont think an average number would be fair. it should depend on individually situation.

  • From what I have been told for rule of thumb is 1 year of alimony for 3 years of marriage. It is also based on your income, his income, if you worked at all during the marriage...also it's not like child support where it can be garnished. They only way to "enforce" it is contempt charges :)

  • That's pretty crappy that a court can make a ruling and it doesn't have to be enforced.
