The multi-millionaire founder of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Richard Stephenson, and his wife, Alicia Stephenson, have been locked in a bitter divorce battle for the better part of the last decade, and the case has been on trial in Illinois since October 2016. One of the more contentious issues in the case is Mrs. Stephenson's request for $400,000.00 per month in alimony. While this amount may seem shocking to some, divorce courts in most states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey, have the discretion to order such an amount, depending on the facts and circumstances of the case.
