Divorce

Jurisdiction and Venue in Annulment Proceedings
The parties must establish proper jurisdiction and venue in order to initiate an annulment action. Usually, to obtain the jurisdiction and proper venue, the courts of the state where the parties were married have jurisdiction in an annulment action. In most states, if one of the parties wants to bring an action in a state court, that party must show that one of the parties has been residing in that particular state for the required period.

It is monetary support given to a dependent ex-spouse to maintain that ex-spouse's standard of living, as it existed during the marriage. Alimony also is given, regardless of the receiving spouse's sex, to compensate for faithful service provided as a homemaker, loss of employment opportunities and the foregone acquisition of skills for the sake of family, and sacrifices made during the marriage.
