Why do I have to pay alimony?

Alimony, or spousal support, is a common factor in many divorces, particularly ones in which one spouse has a much higher income than the other. Alimony payments, typically monthly payments, are meant to allow the receiving spouse to adjust to a new income level, during and after divorce. These payments can change over time for various reason, including if an ex-spouse remarries, gets a new income, or your income level changes. The best way to protect your interests when setting up alimony payments is to discuss your situation with an attorney.
