Child Support & Spousal Maintenance Archives

Alimony isn't guaranteed and must be handled properly

We recently discussed the fact that everyone needs to think carefully about alimony payments. Not everyone who files for a divorce will have to worry about alimony; however, when a case does make this necessary, you have to be ready to handle the situation properly.

Think carefully about the prospect of alimony

Men and women who have given up on a career to become a stay-at-home parent or homemaker might not know what to do if they find out that a divorce is imminent. Unfortunately, this is something that happens all too often.

What's the deal with spousal support?

You have been in your marriage for a while. As most marriages do, yours started out filled with hopes and dreams for the future. You gladly stayed home to raise your children while your spouse went to work, and you managed the household and did your best to keep your family together. Unfortunately, things in your relationship have been bad for a while and now you are ready to move on rather than keep fighting. But how will you support yourself?

Cut ties to your ex faster with a lump sum payment

Now that you and your ex are a thing of the past, you might be ready to be done with having to deal with your ex. This is completely understandable, but if you have children together, it isn't likely possible. If you don't have children together but you will have to pay alimony, you might be able to cut ties to your ex faster if you pay alimony in a lump sum payment.

Financial obligations to your ex must be met

When you file for a divorce from your ex, you are probably ready to be completely done with that person. Having to pay alimony or child support can mean that you still have to deal with your ex. Even though that isn't an ideal situation, you still need to brace yourself for that possibility.

Child support modification tips for paying parents

Paying child support isn't on many people's list of favorite things to do. For the parents who pay child support, there are sometimes situations that come up that would require them to seek a modification to the child support order. If you find yourself in this position, take these tips into account:
