Know what your spousal support orders require you to do

by | Feb 2, 2017 | Alimony, Firm News |

Understanding your spousal support orders is imperative. As we discussed last week, it has come to light that the nominee for the state auditor position is behind on payments that were due to his ex-wife. He noted that the missed payments were simply a misunderstanding of the agreement. This shows how important it is to ensure that you fully understand what you are ordered to do.

In the case covered last week, the ex-wife filed a case against the man to get the arrears taken care of. The case was settled and he was ordered to make scheduled payments until he is caught up on the payments.

If you are facing a divorce case that will include spousal support, child support or any other types of payments, be sure that you are able to make the payments as agreed. Learning about your options for these payments might help you to find one that you can keep up with.

If you find that you can’t keep up with the payments as ordered because of your circumstances, you should file a petition to have the orders modified. This should be done quickly so that you won’t fall too far behind.

We know that it is often easy to get sidetracked and forget about payments. Some agreements are complex, so knowing what you are supposed to do isn’t always easy. In both of those cases, seeking assistance to ensure that you are doing what you are ordered to do is crucial. We can help to get your questions answered so that you can keep up with your obligations.
