The two main types of spousal support are called interim and final. Interim is temporary while final periodic support continues until the payee either dies, remarries, or the court has determined the payee cohabitates with another person. Final periodic support is not considered permanent, but it does last longer than interim support. The court is in charge and has the final say to limit how long the support continues. Courts are also able to, at any time, increase, reduce, and terminate payments. Payments may be stopped or reduced when the payor experiences financial hardship.
