My husband and I were married over 30 years, and I was ordered to pay alimony to him because of his disability. All our children are full grown.
You can't just decide to stop paying alimony because he is going to jail. You can file a petition with the court asking them to terminate alimony or at least suspend alimony payments during the time of his incarceration because he has no need to support himself during that time.
You still have to pay unless a court orders otherwise.
