Terminate Wisconsin Alimony Orders
Stop alimony orders when spouses remarry or financial circumstances change
Sometimes modifying alimony is the right path other times terminating the support order all together is possible. Alimony is financial assistance paid from one partner to the other, which recognizes a homemaker or the less-earning spouse's contribution to the marriage. It's also meant to help the recipient move toward financial independence. However, when it's no longer needed it should be terminated by filing a motion to terminate the support order.
Terminate Alimony during Remarriage
One of the most common instances of a support order being terminated is due to remarriage. In Wisconsin, if the recipient of support gets remarried or it can be proven the recipient is in a marriage-like arrangement (moved in, paying bills together, etc) the payor may seek to terminate the support order. This is accomplished by filing a motion to modify support and petitioning the court to terminate the support order based on the change in circumstances.
Terminate Alimony during Significant Financial Changes
Another reason we often see for a support order being terminated is a significant change in financial circumstances of the recipient. For instance, if a recipient goes from unemployed to employed and makes an equal amount or greater as the payor, the court may find such a significant change in financial circumstances enough to warrant a termination of the support order. This too would be accomplished by filing a motion to terminate support.
