Alimony Investigations: How to lower or stop alimony liability.
Whether you call it alimony, maintenance, spousal support, or spousal maintenance, is a legal obligation on a person to provide financial support to his or her spouse before or after marital separation or divorce.
In general, there are five ways to request a change in alimony.
- The involuntary loss of a job or wage reduction
- An illness or disability that prevents the paying spouse from working
- The remarriage of the supported spouse
- The supported spouse's cohabitation with a new partner, or
- The increase in former spouse’s income.
In general, there are four types of alimony:
- Temporary alimony: Support ordered when the parties are separated prior to divorce. Also called alimony pendente lite, which is Latin, meaning, "pending the suit".
- Rehabilitative alimony: Support given to a lesser-earning spouse for a period of time necessary to acquire work outside the home and become self-sufficient.
- Permanent alimony: Support paid to the lesser-earning spouse until the death of the payor, the death of the recipient, or the remarriage of the recipient.
- Reimbursement alimony: Support given as a reimbursement for expenses incurred by a spouse during the marriage (such as educational expenses).
