This letter can be used to remind the Party who is required to pay the support of their obligations.

How to use this document
This document includes all of the details necessary to demand alimony or other spousal support that is owed, including the names and contact information for both parties, the title and, if applicable, the case number of the court order obligating one Party to pay support, the amount of support that is supposed to be paid and with what frequency, and the amount of support that is owed at the time the letter will be sent. This letter also details the type of support that should be paid. Finally, the letter includes a date by which the Party obligated to pay must respond to the letter.
The most common form of support is known as alimony, which is generally granted for a specific period of time with an option to extend after that time. It is usually used by the recipient to obtain job skills, education, and other resources necessary to become self-sufficient. It is also often awarded to a stay-at-home parent who takes care of the children and so doesn't work outside of the home. Other types of support include lump-sum spousal support, granted in lieu of a property settlement, and permanent spousal support, which continues until the recipient remarries or either Party dies. Support may also be rewarded for one Party to cover a specific expense for the other Party, such as support to pay for health insurance premiums or car payments.
Once this document has been completed, it can be signed and mailed via registered mail so that there is an official record of when the demand was sent and when received by the recipient.
Divorce and separation, including obligations to pay alimony or other spousal support, are generally a matter of state law, with different states having different laws dictating the time and manner in which a divorce is completed.
