The power to "grant" a divorce does not lie with you it lies with the family courts. You cannot force your spouse to stay married to you. The court will establish child support (and alimony, if any) based on the needs of the parties and the ability to pay.
Actually, limited time alimony is better to pay than child support. Child support separate from alimony only became common some 40 years ago. Alimony is tax deductible, while child support is not. When calculating child support, alimony is a deductible item from gross earned income on which the calculations are based, thus less child support is ordered. In addition, the alimony adds to the total taxable the other parent, resulting in them taking on a greater obligation in the support of the children. Balancing the benefits of one over the other is something to discuss with a tax accountant. Reducing taxable income, as a result of paying alimony, could bring the obligor into a lower tax bracket. Combining this with the lower child support obligation could actually create an overall savings as compared to just paying child support.
No. It is customarily written into the divorce decrees that if the spouse who is receiving alimony (aka spousal support) re-marries, the support payments will cease. Now, this does not happen automatically ... the spouse who is paying support must file in court to get this stopped - once the filing has been made, disbursing payments to the other will cease, but garnishments to wages will continue until the court hearing. Once the judgment has been issued in your favor, you will get back the monies back to the date you filed your paperwork to ammend the payments of spousal support.
Get StartedA divorce decree or separation agreement may specify that one spouse shall assist in the support and maintenance of the other spouse. Alimony is not limited to cash payments. The court may order payment of unreimbursed medical or dental expenses, house payments, or other expenses incurred by the receiving spouse. The court may also order that the paying spouse maintain a life insurance policy on his or her life with the receiving spouse named as a beneficiary.The purpose of this letter is to remind the paying spouse of his or her responsibility to make certain payments and to document the demands for payment.A court which enters a decree of divorce containing an order for support usually retains the power to enter a judgment for delinquent alimony obligations. However, to enforce alimony payments, it may be necessary to obtain the assistance of an attorney.
If there is a support order in affect the obligated parent is responsible for keeping payments current and paying any arrearages. If the order was mandated after the divorce decree and the couple lived separately there may still be arrearages for support that the non custodial parent is responsible for paying.
We don't know. How much does your spouse want? How much money do you make? Sometimes women don't ask for alimony when they file for divorce. If you file for divorce you might not have to pay anything. If you make big money you'll pay big bucks. If you have a low paying job you can expect to pay less than half of your salary.
