Divorces aren’t simple. If you’re expecting to pay or receive alimony, the divorce isn’t over once all the papers have been signed and the courtroom dismissed. Alimony payments are generally a lump sum or monthly payment made from one spouse to another. If you and your spouse have been married for multiple years and you make a great deal more money than your spouse, there is a good chance that you will end up having to pay alimony.

Generally, if you have to pay alimony, you will have to pay it for quite some time. There are only a few select situations in which alimony can either be terminated, or reduced. The first is if a judge sets a specific date several years into the future once the initial payment plan is selected. Other situations include if your former spouse remarries, your children no longer need full-time parental supervision, retirement, the spouse has not made a reasonable effort to become self sufficient, or one of you dies. Outside of this, there aren’t many situations in which you can get out of paying alimony.

If you expect to receive alimony, keep in mind that the determining factor as to whether or not you receive it is based on your ability to earn and support yourself. There are agencies that are looking to end alimony for the most part. Studies show that up to 40% of women are the primary breadwinners for their household, while only about 3% of alimony recipients are male. That being said, it’s starting to become apparent that alimony is often times given when there isn’t sufficient need for it. Times are changing and so are certain laws on divorce. To make sure you have the most accurate facts possible, only trust the most up-to-date, knowledgeable attorney with your divorce needs.
