Alimony is financial support paid to a former spouse. There are different types of alimony in South Carolina. Permanent, periodic alimony is paid on a regular schedule over time. It terminates on the death of either party or when the receiving spouse remarries. Alimony is modifiable based upon a showing of substantial change in circumstances of either party.
