Job loss and unpaid alimony

Many different family law matters can arise when a couple decides to end their marriage, some of which involve kids (custody and child support), while other divorce issues involve finances. Aside from property division, some people face challenges as a result of alimony payments, whether they do not receive what they are owed or they cannot stay caught up on payments they are required to make. In this post, we will examine how some people may struggle to pay alimony after losing their job and some options that may be available.

People face financial hardships for all sorts of reasons, but some (such as losing a job) can be particularly difficult because they were unexpected and result in immediate financial challenges. If you have lost your job, or will soon be out of work, you may be worried about how you will be able to stay current on the alimony payments you have to make. This can be very stressful, but falling behind on alimony could make your life even more difficult. For example, you may be required to pay interest, which could result in even greater financial difficulties.

Sometimes, people who experience significant financial changes such as becoming unemployed are able to modify their alimony order, which can make payments more reasonable and ensure that they do not fall behind. You may also benefit from carefully reviewing your circumstances or setting up a payment plan.
