How can I lower my alimony obligations?

After a divorce has been finalized in the state of Rhode Island, it is often the case that alimony is awarded to one of the divorcing spouses. This means that one party will need to make payments to the other former spouse for a certain amount of time. These arrangements are rarely permanent, and they are usually seen as a way to help the transition of the divorce become smoother from a financial perspective.

What You Should Know When Seeking Alimony

Getting divorced is widely considered to be a stressful process, to say the least. Not only does the entire process trigger painful emotions, but it also requires an in-depth review of marital property intended for fair property division. If you have been a stay-at-home spouse, then getting divorced can adversely affect your daily source of sustenance. As an unemployed or underemployed spouse, getting alimony is no longer a distant thought, but an immediate possibility with the aid of a considerate Judge.

FAQ: Receiving spousal support/alimony

Nearly every aspect of divorce is stressful or emotionally draining in some form or another. If you have been unemployed, underemployed, or a stay-at-home parent for a while, one overwhelming aspect of divorce might be how you will provide for yourself and/or your children. Spousal support or alimony may be ordered by court to help compensate you if you are at a financial disadvantage, but you probably have many questions about how alimony works and how it will affect you.
