Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

Our divorce decree states I pay alimony until our child turns 19. There is no language concerning the remarriage of either party.

My ex-wife recently remarried, and I don’t think I should have to continue paying her spousal support if she is someone else’s spouse now.

Do I still need to pay alimony if my decree did not address the issue of alimony termination upon remarriage?

temporary spousal maintenanceBy Erik Carter

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Attorney

Most states’ divorce laws permit a court to order temporary spousal maintenance ("temporary" meaning "during the pendency of the divorce").  

Where I practice, there is no worksheet for calculation for such maintenance, as there is for temporary child support or for contribution to college expenses of children.

The general rule that courts use is to examine the other party’s necessary expenses, subtract from that any income or child support that party may receive, and then use that difference to decide on any award of temporary spousal maintenance.

divorce lawyer Kristen BuzzelliQuestion:

I pay maintenance/alimony to me ex-wife, who recently received a large inheritance after her father died.

As a result, her standard of living is now significantly higher than mine, and I'm still paying her child support and maintenance.

Do I have any chance of success in modifying or eliminating maintenance entirely?

pittsburgh divorce lawyer jana palkoQuestion:

I was the primary breadwinner for many years, but recently while going through the divorce I was fired from my job.

So I am paying large temporary support based off an income I no longer have.

Now that my soon-to-be-ex-wife is the primary earner can I modify the support order and possibly even ask that she provide me with financial support now?

Noblesville Indiana Divorce LawyerQuestion:

I waived my right to alimony in our divorce settlement, but after reviewing the financial settlements my ex-wife filed with the court I found them false and exaggerated.

She lied about her expenses and concealed her checking and saving accounts balance. Now, I have a reduced income due to cutbacks at work and am in financial trouble.

What can I do to lower or terminate my alimony payments based on fraud and reduced income?
