Forums - Share your Alimony Story:

As part of the original divorce, I was provided the opportunity to modify the terms of the original alimony based on my ex wife's ability to receive social security (notice I didn't say retirement, since Connecticut Law still provides for lifetime entitlements). There is enough ambiguity in the law that my legal counsel could not tell me for certain the potential outcome. The result was months of agonizing probing into my finances and a resettlement net savings amount that was less than the costs of litigation.
