Will a Judge Decide Alimony?

Will a Judge Decide Alimony?

In the event that your case is tried before a judge, that judge will make the decisions regarding who will pay alimony and the amount of the alimony payment. The length of time a former spouse must pay alimony is, with few exceptions, dictated by law. However, if you and your spouse are able to reach an agreement without the need for a trial, you and your spouse will make the decisions about who will pay alimony, how much alimony will be paid, and the length of time that the alimony payments will be made by one spouse to the other.
