How does a South Dakota court determine alimony?

In deciding whether to award alimony, a South Dakota court considers: (1) the length of the marriage; (2) each person’s earning capacity; (3) each person’s financial conditions after the property division; (4) each person’s age, health, and physical condition; (5) each person’s station in life or social standing; and (6) the relative fault in the termination of the marriage.
