Turning The Tables on Alimony
Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks pays NBA player, Shelden Williams, $400,000.00 for alimony in the couple’s settlement of their divorce case, according to a report from TMZ Sports. The parties agreed on the division of their assets, including their California home. They also agreed upon custody and parenting time concerning their children. So, the question becomes whether a successful wife paying her successful husband a change in view from judges in divorce cases or was the perception that only husband’s pay alimony a misconception of how divorce court’s address alimony.
As an Arizona divorce law firm, it is pretty rare that we see wifes paying alimony to their husbands; although it does occur in rare circumstances. It is even rarer when a successful NBA player receives an award of alimony in a divorce case. Whether they reached an agreement or the court issued the orders after a trial, this may have some divorce attorneys looking at the issue from a completely new angle thus turning the tables on alimony.
