Courts have discretion (within statutory parameters) to deny spousal support altogether or to limit it in an amount and duration that reflects the ability of both parties to provide for their own needs.

Spousal support can also be contractual and upon the completion of the contract for spousal support you need to file papers with the court so that you can inform the court that your obligation is complete.
