My wife is ill. She is going to register her disability. What will be the alimony amount I will have to pay after divorce?


According to Art. 89, 90 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation spouses shall financially support each other. In case of refuse to render such support or in absence of alimony payment agreement between the spouses, an unemployable impecunious spouse is entitled to recover alimony payments judicially from his/her spouse having the required funds. A disabled impecunious former spouse who became disabled prior to divorce or within a year from the date of divorce is entitled to recover alimony payments from his/her spouse having the required funds. According to Art. 91 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation in case spouses (former spouses) do not reach agreement concerning amount of alimony payments, such amount shall be determined by the court on the basis of financial and marital status of the spouses (former spouses) and other noteworthy interests of the parties, such amount shall be fixed and paid monthly. A former spouse can be relieved from his/her duty to support his/her unemployable impecunious spouse or such support can be limited by time both during the marriage and after divorce in case spouse’s disability resulted from inordinate drinking, drug use, commission of an intentional crime; due to short period of marriage or disgraceful behaviour of a spouse claiming for alimony payments (Art. 92 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation).
