divorce lawyer Daniel ExnerQuestion:

My soon-to-be-ex-wife and I signed a marital settlement agreement that she would not request alimony if she is hired for a job in her chosen field before we officially file for divorce in a few months. 

If she gets a job with a good pay, will the judge honor our separation agreement of no alimony will be paid by either party?

mens divorce lawyerQuestion:

My wife hired a divorce lawyer after we filed for separation, but I am representing myself pro se. I am not pleased with the alimony order her lawyer drafted, but I have already agreed to it "temporarily."

What should I do in order to have the terms of the alimony order changed?

Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

My question is about how much alimony and child support I am going to have to pay and if those calculations are based on my current overloaded work schedule.

I work two jobs and nearly 80 hours a week to support my family because my wife refuses to work. I have been doing this for years.

Will my alimony and child support payments be based on these outrageous work hours or will a judge calculate payments based on a reasonable work week that hopefully I can return to post-divorce?

My soon-to-be-ex-wife and I both agreed in our divorce settlement agreement to no alimony.

However, because we have been married for almost 20 years, will the judge award alimony anyway considering the length of our marriage or will the court uphold our mutually-reached agreement?

modify alimonyBy Rebecca Ripley

Baltimore Divorce Lawyer, Cordell & Cordell

Generally, the answer as to whether or not a person can seek a modification of alimony can be found in the order that originally granted alimony.

The order should state whether or not the amount of alimony is "modifiable." If the order awarded non-modifiable support, unfortunately, it usually is non-modifiable unless a state statute requires something in addition to that language.

Some awards of alimony are for a specific amount for a limited duration and are not typically modifiable. Sometimes alimony is ordered to be paid until one of several events occurs.
