The court can order alimony to either party in Oklahoma. Alimony may be in the form of property or money. If money is awarded, it may be made payable in a lump sum or in installments. The amount of alimony awarded is based upon the need of the recipient and the ability to pay of the payor. The court will not consider marital fault (such as adultery) when awarding alimony. Also, temporary alimony may be ordered while the divorce is pending.
