Alimony vs maintenance.




Please advice the difference between alimony (sec 24, 25 etc) and maintenance. (sec 18). Can citations available as "alimony" be used for "mainenance" ? I am husband, defending myself-in-person. On my petition, divorce was ordered under "cruelty & desertion". Thanks.

The words are used interchangably after divorce.


Till divorce happens the word is maintenance.
