Does alimony ever end in Ohio?

Whether you have been ordered to pay alimony or you are currently receiving it, you may have many questions about how long these payments will continue, or if they can ever be modified or terminated early. Well, the short answer is that it depends.

Preliminary hearings can give your defense a head start

How is alimony determined?

When a couple gets divorced, alimony may be rewarded to one of the former spouses.

The purpose of alimony is to keep things fair between the splitting parties and to avoid leaving one spouse in an economic crisis.
