Alimony Adjustment Mediator

Alimony is also known as “spousal support” or “maintenance” payments. These payments come after a divorce. 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.

Child Scheduling Help After Divorce

If you have recently been through a divorce, you already know that even the best, most thoughtful, and detailed parenting plans cannot account for every potential change or issue that can come up weeks, months or even years after it is finalized.

But, there are times when issues come up that require a change to the schedule. If these scheduling changes are becoming a routine occurrence, you might need some help navigating these changes without increasing conflict. Mediation is ideal for helping you and your ex-spouse come to an agreement on many post-divorce issues like schedule changes.
