Challenge the Alimony Statutes!!

"When a legislature undertakes to proscribe the exercise of a citizen's constitutional rights it acts lawlessly and the citizen can take matters into his own hands and proceed on the basis that such a law is no law at all."
--William O. Douglas

Are you now paying alimony??

Is there a possibility you will be unable to make your payments sometime in the future?

Are you facing contempt of court or in the middle of a contempt hearing?

If the answer to any of the three questions is yes, then it will be to your advantage to look into challenging the constitutionality of your states alimony statutes as violating your constitutional rights. This might seem a lofty and daunting endeavor to undertake, but let me assure you it is well within your reach. And, you don’t have to be a lawyer to do it.

The constitutional challenge arguments can be used as a defense to the contempt proceedings and will get the case to appeal. As an example of what can be done by a non-lawyer on a Pro Se basis (without an attorney), take a look at the court filings in my case at www.abolish-alimony.org. Look here and here.

By and large, the media has taken no notice of our plight. It has been extremely difficult to get publicity for the injustices served up by the “justice system.” The more people that are consumed by this process, the more emboldened the judiciaries are to continue enslaving spouses. And for most of us, this means the courts will keep you under their thumb for the rest of your life.

The more of these cases that can be filed with the courts, the sooner the judicial system will take notice of the extent that they are violating the constitutional rights of divorced spouses who have to pay alimony. To see the rights they are violating, read this document.

The only way you can help yourself is to fight back using the laws they have created against them. Unless you do it now, there is a good possibility you will be facing contempt of court trial and jail for not being able pay your alimony when your earnings capacity diminishes in later life like mine did. There will be no closure to your life, no ability to go on with your life with a new family, no peace of mind in your “golden years.”

A lot of people have contacted me regarding their plight and tell me of their hardship in having to pay alimony (especially lifetime alimony as imposed in Florida). If this is your situation, this is the best opportunity you will find to get relief from your burden without spending bundles of money on attorneys. Don’t be like a lot of people who just complain about their plight and do nothing about it. Here is your chance to take a little action that might prove beneficial to you. Do it now to try and stop the further outflow of alimony payments!!
