Alimony Forum

The Alimony Forum is the perfect place to find some of the answers you seek. Divorce is so difficult, and many women are faced with challenges they weren't expecting, like raising children without a spouse or paying for medical benefits when they are really broke.

This really burns me! Our society has welcomed women's liberation in so many ways, trying to get women up to par with men's salaries, but it still hasn't happened. But essentially, women will always have the blessing of having the children, and caring for them. Career-wise, women take hits to care for their families, and if a divorce occurs, they are not rewarded fairly for their efforts. See the Alimony Guidelines Page for more information about how alimony is awarded.

So, I highly suggest seeking free consults with attorneys in your area, read as many law help books from your local library as you can handle, read our disclaimer, and see below for further reading on this site.
