Unpredictability Of Alimony

Sometimes, the outcome of divorce proceedings surprise the individuals requesting alimony and child support. The only law that is nationwide is that the court must not consider gender at all when awarding alimony and child support. With no firm laws in place, divorce agreements and case outcomes can differ drastically, leading to some unfair decisions. The outcome of divorce agreements involving alimony requests are left up to the judge in family court, unless the couple agrees on the alimony and child support arrangements personally.

If set laws were put into effect, an individual would know what will entitle them to alimony payments and what will not.
