Question: I have a spousal maintenance order that stops when I have attained federal eligibility age of retirement. What does this mean?
Answer: It is unclear from your question whether the order refers to the age when a person is entitled to full social security benefits or if you are talking about retirement age for federal employees. If the order refers to Social Security, go to https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/ageincrease.html. If it refers to retirement for federal employees, go to https://www.opm.gov/retirement-services/fers-information/eligibility/. If you are unsure, talk to your lawyer. If you do not have a lawyer, you can obtain a legal consult for a small fee.
There are 3 programs in Arizona that you can use to get some inexpensive legal advice and guidance. One is the Modest Means Program. If you are financially qualified for the program, for a $75 fee, Modest Means offers a one hour consult with an experienced attorney. If you need additional help and the attorney agrees to take your case, the fee charged will not exceed $75 per hour. The telephone number is (866)637-5341. Both the Maricopa and Pima County Bar Associations have lawyer referral programs that offer a 30 minute consult with an experienced attorney. Maricopa County's Lawyer Referral Service offers a 30 minute consult for a fee of $40. The telephone number is (602) 257-4434.
