Alimony payments are often mandated in divorces where one spouse will be affected financially as a result of the divorce, usually because one spouse makes significantly less than the other. These payments can help the receiving spouse maintain a lifestyle that he or she has become used to during marriage, while also adjusting to changed financial circumstances. As a legally mandated payment, it is possible and often necessary to take legal action to force an ex-spouse who refuses to pay alimony make these critical payments.
Taking Steps to Enforce Alimony Payments
Although getting alimony payments is often essential for a person, enforcing alimony can be a difficult process that many people do not want to take on by themselves. Fortunately, legal assistance is available in this situation, and alimony payments can be enforced through:
- Writ of Execution
- Withholding income
- Judgment and interest
Through one or more of these methods, you can legally take action to get a reluctant ex-spouse to make the alimony payments that you are owed according to your divorce documents.
If your ex-spouse is not paying you the alimony payments that were established during your divorce proceedings, then it is likely that you need help getting these necessary payments.
