Divorce is usually not a pleasant experience. Often hard feelings can remain for many years after a divorce is complete. Some of those hard feelings come from the fact that in many cases one spouse has to pay spousal support to the other. Although some people are diligent in paying their monthly support on time, other times people refuse to pay.
So what can you do if your spouse is not current on his or her spousal support payment, or just simply refuses to pay? You might even wonder if you can do anything at all. The answer is yes, there are things you can do, or steps that you can take, to help get the spousal support money you deserve.
