If paying alimony and ex spouse becomes eligible to draw Social Security on ex spouse who is paying alimony can alimony payments stop?
Answer . It depends on the wording of the alimony decree. Generally, the alimony and the Social Security are independent of one another.
You need to consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your options under your state laws.
The present day term for alimony is spousal support . This can be awarded to either spouse in a divorce proceeding depending on need, length of the marriage, the role of the …parties in the marriage and ability to pay. If both parties are self sufficient alimony is not awarded. It may be awarded temporarily while one gets the necessary training or education to become self-sufficient. The original awards for alimony were granted under early English Common Law when women were not allowed to work and were kept in a state of dependency by their husband's and the law. The courts recognized that they had to allow women to separate from their husbands in serious cases of abuse or abandonment. Although divorce was rarely allowed, alimony was awarded because the wife had no way to support herself and her children. Men were forced to support the wives they had abused or abandoned. A married women (most women) had no way to earn a living and all her property was under the control of her husband. She owned nothing and had no legal existence outside the marriage. As time progressed, alimony was a means to equalize financial resources between the parties since traditionally a woman supported her husband's education and career and could in no way match the earning power he developed with her help and support. Alimony is not something you can simply apply for. In fact, most marriages that end in divorce do not involve alimony at all. You need to consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your options under your state laws. The decision will eventually be up to a judge.
Answer A set amount of money paid from one spouse to another to help the lesser-earning spouse maintain a certain standard of living. Alimony is most common in situations whe…re one spouse makes considerably more than the other. Also referred to as "spousal support". Answer Alimony is a payment made by one spouse to another when they divorce. The amount is usually set by a judge. If one person in the relationship tends to make more money or supports the other person in the relationship the judge might order " alimony " to be paid to that person in order for them to continue living as they were. It is reguarded by most non lawyers as a punishment ordered by a judge to men and now some women because our legal industry makes vast sums of money off the litigation all the while caring nothing of the lives the destroy so one side can work 2 jobs while the other has to do nothing in return. It is what is known as justice
FORGRT IT YOU CAN'T UNLESS YOU DIE!!!!
you must seek out a lawyer , if there are children involved you must still pay child support, if not , an attorney is your quickest and best answer.
If you file a petition to modify alimony will it temporarily stop alimony payments in the state of Florida?
NO. Alimony payments must continue until a new court order has been signed. The petition only serves to establish retroactivity of total amount due. I know because my ex-hu…sband was under an income deduction order. He decided to retire. He didn't notify the company or me which he was required to do. He also did not report to the federal government that the income deduction order was still in effect at the time of application. He owes you total amount due up to the date of his filing of the petition. That is vested and due you. The very first thing you should do when alimony payments stop after 15 days, file an Order to Show Cause why he should not be held in contempt, and jailed until he pays the "purge amount"and Notify him of court date. Your motion must contain a WARNING. You will have to look it up and be sure you put it in your motion. It is important and necessary. Look all this up for your county and follow it to the letter. Then stand guard over your attorney and make sure he does this. You have to know the rules of procedure and the law, case law that will "move the court" to give you what you ask for. Don't let your attorney get away with anything. Don't leave anything up to him. Make sure you get a copy to approve BEFORE he files. If you don't do all these things, then you might end up like me but I caught on and I do not intend to let anyone else take advantage of me....my ex, my attorney, his attorney, the judge....You can be sure they will if you let them. I know these things because I am going through the experience. You have to know the law and follow the law to get what you need accomplished. You determine your fate. Only you. Do whatever you have to do. Don't underestimate anyone concerned with your case. Do not leave it to someone else.
Am summoned to court so that ex husband can stop alimony. do you have to go to court if you are not going to contest the stopping of the payment of alimony?
It would be best to go with counsel, (in my opinion) But you could sign a agreed order. depends on the state.
If that is a provision of Ohio law, you may need a PI to gather evidence, but tax returns from the same address often works. Subpoena them.
No just like the rest of this country where women are 100% dependent on men, if he stops paying I'm sure she'll screw him over even more.
It Stops when judge ruled in such case ,some get it till you remarry or until you die other half of marriage years you had together..
No. Alimony is intended to support the ex-spouse (generally, for a limited period of time). Child support is intended to support the children.
Nothing. Alimony is only required by court order in the case of a divorce. A current spouse cannot be compelled to send alimony. Let's leave the semantics aside for the mo…ment. If your ex -spouse stops sending the court-ordered alimony, then you can report them (if you're not sure who to report them to, call your local legal aid office and ask... the information desk at your nearest courthouse should be able to give you their number). Nonpayment of support is looked on unfavorably by the courts.
Can you collect alimony from your current husband to stop or limit child support from his baby mother?
In a word, No.
Doubtful that condition would be in the divorce agreement. Check out the language regarding the alimony. For instance, there may be a time limit or, if your remarry it stops. …To me, it would be unusual to include disability as a condition.
See a solicitor (lawyer) - let them fight the case for you. If your ex refuses to co-operate, they could get your ex's wages garnished at source so they would have no choice b…ut to pay up !
Alimony continues until the court decides otherwise. If the spouse remarries, the best option to take would be torequest a revision of the agreement. Alimony is not set-in-sto…ne,and can be altered based on changing circumstances, but that alteris dependent on the court's view; not your own.
