Tulsa Alimony Attorney
Alimony is when a spouse supports an ex-wife for a period after the divorce. This is a fairly common practice in America. This is not something that a judge will decide unlike if there are children involved. This a mutual agreement that is worked out between the two party's that are divorcing.
An Alimony payment is not something that last for forever. Many things are considered when an Alimony payment is being made such as the spouse's education level and work history. Many husbands will just support the former wife until she is able to support herself.
There are several variables in how Alimony works. if the main income earner is the sole provider of the family and the wife is more than likely disabled or unable to work then Alimony payments could turn into permanent payments.
If you are seeking Alimony payments from your former spouse then it is best that you seek out a divorce attorney in your local area to help you determine what your options are.
