Before you agree to waive alimony ("spousal support"), or pay even $1, talk to an attorney. Whether alimony is appropriate, and if so how much and for how long, are fact-specific issues that are dealt with on a case-by-case basis by the family court.  When a party receiving or paying spousal support remarries, or if there are other changes in circumstances, an adjustment to the alimony payment is sometimes appropriate.  A skilled attorney will consider the model spousal support guidelines, and the specific facts of your case, to find a strategy that is best for your situation.
