How Long After Alimony Is Awarded Before I Start Receiving Payments in Missouri?

Sharing is caring:

In Missouri, once alimony (also known as spousal maintenance) is awarded by the court, the timing for when you start receiving payments can vary. Generally, the paying spouse will begin making payments according to the schedule outlined in the court order. This could mean payments start immediately after the order is issued, or there may be a delay depending on the specific circumstances of the case.

It’s essential to consult with your attorney or legal advisor to understand the specifics of your situation, including any factors that might affect the timing of alimony payments. Additionally, the court order itself will typically specify the details regarding when and how the payments are to be made.
