  • I was married for 20 yr and am now divorced my divorce decree states that husband to pay wife for 10 yrs this is non modifiable

    and non terminal except on wife's death. I am now getting ready to remarry will I still get my alimony.?

    Samuel’s Answer

    You need to have an attorney review your court order to determine if there is a provision for support for ten years that is only terminable upon death or expiration of the term. I would suggest that you obtain a free consultation and take your court order with you so that you can be sure before you remarry.

    Samuel’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorney's who have already responded. You may also be able to obtain sanctions if she has damaged your credit in any way by not paying off the mortgage when your name is still on the loan. Do you have other personal property matters that still need to be decided? Do you have a future court date already scheduled?

    Samuel’s Answer

    The best advice is to seek an attorney to help you in that matter. An attorney would need to first reading through your divorcee decree to determine what the terms are that you are seeking to enforce and if any of those terms violate public policy in this state. Generally, speaking you can enforce a valid court order from another state in this state based on the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution.

    Samuel’s Answer

    You should consult an attorney in person to review your court documents to ensure that you do not lose out on any arrearages that you may be entitled to. Typically, once you file the RFO you may receive support from the date of the filing forward.

  • I am single and have been divorced for 17 years. Can i still ask for alimony since i have been below the poverty level since

    Day One?

    Samuel’s Answer

    Do you have a copy of your court orders from 17 years ago? You will need to read that carefully as the other attorney's have suggested so that you can determine if there is any possibility of obtaining alimony after all this time.

    Samuel’s Answer

    I would suggest that you comply with the Mexican Court order before remarrying if you are going to keep your Mexican citizenship. You may want to speak with an immigration attorney and or family attorney in Mexico to determine if there are any violations of law by remarrying prior to the expiration of the court ordered term.
