- A date set by a judge several years in the future
- Your former spouse remarries
- Your children no longer need a full-time parent at home
- A judge determines that after a reasonable period of time, your spouse has not made a sufficient effort to become at least partially self-supporting
- Some other significant event—such as retirement—occurs, convincing a judge to modify the amount paid, or
- One of you dies.
- As with most issues in your divorce, you and your spouse can agree to the amount and length of time alimony will be paid. But if you can’t agree, a court will set the terms for you. Unfortunately, having a court make the decision means there will be a trial, and that can cost you a lot of time and money.
