Monmouth Permanent Alimony Lawyers
Alimony payments are often established in divorces in which there is a significant difference in the incomes or financial means of the two spouses, or one spouse needs help in order to support themselves after the divorce. While rarer and a trend that judicial bodies are moving away from, permanent alimony payments are sometimes established, causing one spouse to pay the other a certain amount for the rest of their life, the rest of the other spouse’s life, or until the other spouse remarries.
When Permanent Alimony May be Necessary
While temporary alimony is more commonly established following a divorce, permanent alimony will be set in certain situations, such as:
- One spouse has no income
- One spouse is the primary caretaker of a disabled child
- A court thinks permanence necessary
- One spouse is disabled, mentally or physically
Whether these payments are established for these or other reasons and you’re paying or receiving these payments, it’s critical that your interests are properly represented, so that the payments are something you can live with permanently. It’s also important to keep in mind that even permanent alimony payments can change over time.
