mens divorce lawyer William BackerQuestion:

I am ordered to make monthly alimony payments to my ex-wife per our divorce decree.

We both owe a mutual debt to the IRS. However, I do not have enough money to afford this payment. 

May I withhold alimony payments from my ex-wife and use that money to pay off our IRS obligation?

child alimonyMassachusetts is the latest state to enact sweeping changes to its archaic alimony laws, as alimony reform movements are gaining momentum around the country.

Both houses of the Massachusetts legislature unanimously voted to change the alimony laws, which put an end to lifetime alimony obligations and a cap on payments based on the duration of a marriage.

One of the forces behind the alimony reform movement is Elizabeth Benedict, a novelist and journalist whose op-ed piece in the Boston Globe in 2008 helped moved forward the alimony reform movement in Massachusetts.

Benedict talked with DadsDivorce.com editor Matt Allen about "medieval" alimony laws and what other states are in desperate need of reform. (Note: you can learn more about alimony reform movements in various states by visiting the sites MassAlimonyReform.org and FloridaAlimonyReform.com.)

financial advice on divorceQuestion:

I am looking for legal separation advice for a unique situation where my wife and I are still living together, so I need financial advice on divorce.

We have decided to remain living together in the marital home for the sake of our children, but we are about to be legally separated.

Will I have to pay her child support and alimony during this period? What are my financial obligations to her and our children if I continue to pay the bills, mortgage, etc.? Please provide me with any separation advice for men you have.

divorce questions to askQuestion:

My wife filed for divorce shortly before learning she had cancer and is requesting alimony.

We were married for almost 20 years and she was a stay-at-home mom for the most part, though she said she recently quit her part-time job because of her illness.

At this point, it appears the judge is planning to order me to pay all of her bills, including mortgage and medical expenses, in addition to the child support and alimony payments he is considering.

All of these additional payments will quickly bankrupt me.

Can I be ordered to provide alimony in such an excessive amount that I'm left destitute?

Alimony Question:divorce lawyer Erin Clark

My soon-to-be-ex is terminally ill and was ill at the time she filed for divorce. Because of her condition, I have been ordered to pay alimony and all of her bills, including some medical costs, which have a current outstanding balance of almost $50,000.

Now the judge has ordered me to take out half of my retirement to help cover costs.

Is there anything that can be done to challenge the judge's decisions? I am going broke and now going through my retirement funds!
