Things to consider before requesting alimony from your spouse

Couples who are divorcing will address a number of legal issues before everything is finalized and they go their separate ways. It is likely that one spouse will be considering requesting alimony when the couple chooses to move forward with the divorce. While alimony is very helpful to those who need it, it is not always awarded when it is requested. For that reason, spouses should ask themselves a few questions before they request alimony from their spouse.

How do adjudicated and presumed fathers differ?

Children deserve to have both parents present as they grow into adults. Sometimes, however, for varying reasons, they miss out on the chance to develop a relationship with their fathers because the men are absent from their lives. Knowing that some men actually do not want to be a part of their child's life, when a man takes responsibility, it can be of great benefit for the mother to encourage involvement. Based on the relationship the man and child have, the man will fall under one of two types of fathers.

Parents who are not in a relationship or married can often disagree on how to handle issues regarding their child. What one may feel is a smart, fair decision, the other may dispute.

As time goes by, families may experience a number of legal issues. No family is perfect, so it is not surprising that some people end up in court when they are having a disagreement or dispute over something.

Do I have to receive alimony as monthly payments?

When people decide to end their marriage, it is likely that one or both of them will consider requesting spousal support. The topic of alimony isn't always a light subject for divorcing couple to discuss because they may feel differently about it. Depending on how each spouse feels about this, it could quickly turn into a nasty, heated debate, especially if one spouse disagrees with the other's determination that they deserve alimony.

Defenses spouses can use against a divorce filing

Divorce is not always something both spouses agree upon. Just because one spouse wants to end the marriage doesn't necessarily mean the other spouse feels the same. If one spouse has chosen to file for divorce, the spouse not wanting to end the marriage could create a problem because they may try to fight the filing. However, they are only allowed to use certain defenses when trying to stop the divorce proceedings and stay married to their spouse.

What one parent may feel is fair, the other may not agree with, which may lead to the courts deciding for them. While parents may depend on the courts to make a decision that is in their favor, it is something that doesn't always happen. This could leave parents angry, bitter and eager to continue to engage in a battle for custody they may lose again.

File a paternity action to establish parentage

Not every couple that has a child together can fully trust each other to not get emotional and lash out should the relationship come to an end. When people get angry or upset, they may try to use their children to get back at the other parent. Sometimes, this can involve keeping the child from their father and making it difficult for them to develop a relationship. One way fathers can attempt to avoid this issue is by filing a paternity action.
