The concept of alimony is regulated by Sec. 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code. The provision enables the lower-earning spouse to get a certain amount of money as alimony from the higher-earning spouse.
There are two ways of paying alimony – (1)a hefty amount paid at the time of divorce (2)paid after the divorce at a regular interval,either monthly or quarterly.
