Setting Up And Modifying Spousal Support In Kentucky
Around the country, there is considerable hand-wringing about the purpose of alimony. Some believe that these support payment should be a mechanism that permanently equalizes the standard of living between the divorcing spouses while others see alimony as a means to an end. The Kentucky alimony law basically strikes a balance between these two extremes, because it allows for permanent payments as long as the obligee spouse can prove a financial or other hardship.
Modification can be a rather undertain proposition, since it can be based on objective income and expense data or on a more subjective relationship change.
