Per my sep agreement I have 3 years of alimony to pay. I paid 50k in monthly alimony payments for the first year (while separated, during waiting period before divorce could be processed). For year 2 and 3, it is cut in half and I pay 25k each year.
Does that reduction in alimony result in a frontloaded situation? I don’t know if the reduction is considered “significant”. The reason for the higher alimony was agreed to was because I had the cash assets distributed to me during the divorce which I knew I could use for alimony the first year. After that, I accepted the 25k because it was affordable by my salary.
