If a husband files for divorce he can specify that no alimony be paid. If a wife files, she can ask for alimony, but usually it's because she has no income or a very low amount of salary. The wife can ask for whatever amount she wants but the husband can file a paper showing that he can't afford that amount. The judge can decide how much it will be. Usually it's less than half of whatever the spouse earns. Many women don't ask for alimony. In most divorces women don't pay alimony to men. If you have a rich wife you could get it. If the woman (or man) receives alimony and gets married - the alimony stops. If the person who pays alimony gets married they still have to pay it.

How can you pay off a debt your ex is responsible for in the divorce decree to free your credit and keep them legally obligated to repay you?
The only option I believe you would have, is to sue your ex for the money you spend paying off his/her financial obligations. It would seem to me, if the person will or can't… pay the creditors. It would be highly unlikely you would be able to recover your money either.
In joint custody where the child resides equally with each parent and the mother earns more money is the father still obligated to pay 23 percent of his net income?
Answer Whatever the judge mandates. If you can go to court and get a different amount for child support, go for it. Good luck.
if so ordered by a judge YES ...
No, you would not be responsible for your husband's alimony payments to his ex-wife if he can't pay. Your income is not considered a factor in payments. Depending on the a…greement, your husband may modify the alimony payments in court if he can show proof he is unable to pay.
Florida has no fault divorce. Infidelity is not an issue.
Yes. If the father and mother mutually agree to relinquish the biological father's rights he will not have to pay child support. However, most states will not allow this unles…s the new spouse is willing to legally adopt and provide for the child.
Wouldn't that be cruel...NO, he wouldn't! Unless there was some clause specifically written into the settlement (did he have a lawyer read it and advise him before he agreed t…o it?), the alimony terminates when she remarries.
Yes of course. Why would being married having any bearing on you paying child support? Suppose she marrys another loser and he doesn't have a job. They will need your income t…o help support the family.
Of course! You made a commitment and the court will make sure to keep it.
That's interpreted by the court.
As a victim of domestic violence, she should be required to pay anything.
I am paying child support in Wisconsin for 1 child I am divorcing in Iowa and my wife is getting half my salary in alimony Can I modify my child support order based on half income?
You can not modify your child support. Only the court can modify your child support. It is possible the court will do that. It is unusual for your wife to get half your sala…ry. In setting child support, this is a deductible item in all states, that should have been taken into consideration. If not, you can request a modification. see links below
If you adopt a child while married and then get divorced will you be obligated to pay child support?
If it is ordered by the court you have to pay it.

Yes, in many cases the husband may have to pay alimony if he remarries. However, is some cases if his ex wife remarries the ex husband may be lucky enough not to have to pay a…limony. Depending on what the agreement was during the divorce you will need to seek legal counsel. The remarriage of the husband has no effect whatsoever on his alimony obligation. You need to review the court orders.
