If one party has a need for alimony at the time of the final judgment but the other party has only enough funds to pay child support, the court may reserve jurisdiction to award alimony later.
The reduction of a child support obligation upon each child’s emancipation may then provide a change in circumstances, enabling the payor spouse to afford alimony.
In addition, if the payor spouse’s reduction in income could be later reversed, the court may reduce alimony to a nominal amount to reserve jurisdiction to increase it later.
