The amount of alimony that you would receive would depend on what the current orders are in your divorce. If your former husband wishes to change the amount of support you are receiving, he would need to petition the court for a modification of support in order to lower it.

This question cannot be answered in a vacuum. What does your order say? Was this a marriage of long duration or was it a short marriage? Have there been a change of circumstances? Without more information, it would be improper to answer this question. If you are in my area and are looking for an attorney, please contact me for a free consultation and I may be able to answer your questions after speaking with you further about your specific case.

I am not quite sure what you are asking. Is he trying to modify an existing alimony award that was ordered in the final judgment? He can only do that if he petitions the court and if there is a substantial change in circumstances that warrants the modification. If he simply "chooses" to reduce the payment, then he would be in contempt of the prior order. Hope that answers your question. If not, feel free to inquire further.

Your question as posted does not make sense. Alimony is set in the divorce, not two years later. Your answer as to what alimony there is, if any, is in your divorce papers, as is whether the amount can or cannot be changed.

If there is a court order requiring him to pay alimony, it will take another court order to change it. If there is no court order requiring him to pay something, then he legally free to do what he wants. If you did not get court ordered alimony when you were divorced 2 years ago, you probably can't get it now.
