Motion to Terminate Spousal Maintenance
Ending Spousal Support. After a divorce, one spouse may be ordered by the court to pay spousal maintenance, formerly known as alimony, to the other spouse. Although the factors for determining the amount and length of maintenance vary from state to state, the maintenance amount is generally based upon the previous standard of living, a spouse’s financial resources, including current income and earning potential. Often the maintenance order will not specify an ending date and if it does not the obligation will generally continue until the death of either party or the marriage of the spouse receiving support unless terminated by a court.
Spouse maintenance agreements and court orders that have a specified end date will result in the maintenance obligation terminating on that stated date. A poorly worded or vague spousal support agreement, settlement, or order can negatively impact your life for many years, or even the remainder of your life. For spouses stuck in an unfair maintenance order, the experienced divorce attorneys of Flanagan & Peel, PC, can guide you in the legal process of filing a motion to terminate spousal maintenance.
