1- What does alimony mean? When can a request for alimony be filed?
Alimony is a husband’s obligation to spend on his wife. It includes food, cloths, medical care, housing, and whatever is deemed necessary for a wife to have a decent living.
When the husband stops fulfilling his duty to provide the wife with alimony, the latter may bring the matter before Court and file a request for alimony, with or without a case for divorce.
