Fort Worth Alimony Attorneys
During the process of divorce, the courts will have the power to order one partner to pay the other spousal support, or alimony, in a limited amount over a limited period of time. However, alimony will only be awarded under fairly specific circumstances that are associated with the financial circumstances of both former spouses following the divorce.
At The Maynard Law Firm, PLLC, our Fort Worth alimony attorneys understand just how important this support can be, and we can help you prepare a comprehensive legal strategy to help you ensure that you are treated fairly after your divorce is finalized. That being said, our legal team can help you pursue any course of legal action necessary to enforce or modify your alimony agreement.
Enforcing Spousal Support
When former spouses fail to provide the alimony they have been ordered to pay, they may be taken back to court to enforce the terms of their alimony agreement. Though it may be difficult to take your former spouse to court, this may be the only way to get the alimony payments that the court itself determined that you were in need of at the time of your divorce.
Modifying Spousal Support
In the event that the financial circumstances of either former spouse changes after the divorce, it may be necessary to modify the spousal support obligation to reflect their new financial circumstances. In more practical terms, a spousal support obligation may be modified if certain things occur such as the receiving spouse getting remarried or getting a new job that pays enough income to adequately provide for their basic needs or if the paying spouse losses their job or is no long able to earn income for some reason.
