'Alimony for life' makes moving on after a divorce difficult

When a marriage ends in divorce, there are many issues to be determined, including property division and parenting plans. One concern near the top of people's minds is spousal support--will one spouse have to pay alimony to the other? Unfortunately for some divorced people, this is an issue that goes on and on, long after the marriage is over.

A divorce can be a turning point in a person's life--for better or for worse.
