- 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

- 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.
