Question #54:
Can divorce settlements to be paid on a monthly basis for a period of time?
Answer:
The divorce settlements that are arrived at by the parties themselves through the mediation process can generally be paid over a period of time so long as neither the parties themselves nor any of the children will become dependent upon the state for support. The terms of the settlement must provide for the realistic support of the defendant party as well as the children involved, if any.
