Can men get alimony if they're stay-at-home spouses?

As a man in an unusual situation, it's important that you understand alimony. You may have been a stay-at-home father, or perhaps you put your career on hold for your spouse. Whatever the reasons were, if you're not where you wanted to be in your career, alimony is one way that your spouse can make up for that.

Preparing for divorce: What you should keep in mind about alimony

When you're going to be paid or going to pay alimony, there are records you should keep. Preparing for what you need now can help you avoid trouble later. These records are important for your own recordkeeping as well as for the courts and your taxes. Alimony is tax deductible for the person paying and needs to be reported by the person receiving it so that he or she can pay taxes on the sum.

What can or can't be in a prenuptial agreement?

If you decide to have a prenuptial agreement drawn up before you get married, you need to understand what can and cannot be included. There are certain things you can't include in a prenuptial agreement, because including those items could hurt you or your to-be spouse in the future. These items may be time sensitive, for instance, so the courts would want to have you make a decision when the time comes, not beforehand.
