I used Rosen Law back in 2010 and have been paying alimony for the past 11 years of a12 year commitment. I have a Separation Agreement and Property Settlement. Have been granted a Judgment for Absolute Divorce. Now that I have a year left, do I need to worry about her coming after me for more alimony or support for any reason after the 12 years? I heard about something called “ever and forever” that if that specific statement is not in the separation agreement she can go after me after the 12 years fore more alimony or support?
In the alimony section of my separation agreement there is a specific subsection that says:
“The provisions for the support and maintenance of Wife shall not be modified or changed except by further written agreement duly executed by the parties as outlined herein Article 4, subparagraph 4.12.”
The subparagraph is titled Amendment, and goes into more detail about this alteration or amendment of the Separation Agreement generally saying there must be mutual agreement to make temporary modifications from time to time but this agreement shall be binding upon the parties as written.
Do I need an attorney?
