I have been divorced since November 15, 2010. My X wife has not applied for tier 2 benefits. I want to know if there is a time limit on this proposal.
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Ohio
I can not get an answer to this question. I have to pay her alimony every month until tier 2 has come in. She is slow in appling to her benefits. We have been divorced sinse Nov. 15,2010, and she is dragging her feet because she is receiving from me more money than she would receive from RRRetirement. Please Help! Fred Saleem
Hello,You can file a motion to modify/terminate alimony/maintenance in family court and ask the court to order your obligation terminated unless your ex provides proof that she has applied for benefits by some reasonable date (30 days), and that the application be copied to you, so that you can determine that the application was made in good faith. Then, the court could hold a follow-up hearing in around 90 days to determine if your ex is actually receiving benefits -- in which case, the court would terminate your support obligation at that time.You'll have to push, because it's too easy for your ex to just "do nothing."For a family law attorney referral, see this link.
