The marital settlement agreement and/or the court’s divorce judgment will contain an order that defines the terms of the alimony payments, like how much will be paid each month and when the payments are due. Some orders also say when alimony ends–this might be a specific date or be connected to an event, like the remarriage of the spouse receiving alimony. Orders also describe specifics under which alimony can be modified, let’s say if someone becomes employed. In some events, some orders will state that the amount of alimony will never be changed under any circumstance.
