Are you receiving enough alimony?
Do you think you paying too much alimony?
Regardless of whether you are receiving or paying alimony, often the amounts are not fair.
Alimony payments are set up in order to ensure that the spouse who has lesser financial means continues to have a lifestyle similar to the one they did while married. Many factors go into how much alimony must be paid and for how long.
After separation, people will undergo lifestyle changes. Sometimes, this means their income goes up or down which may mean that any alimony payments need to be adjusted.
We do want to point out that alimony is not automatically paid by men. More and more, we are seeing that women are not paying alimony to men as they become the main earners in a marriage.
