Modification of Alimony

Alimony and spousal support are supposed to be ways to help the spouse of lesser
income stay financially afloat after their
divorce finalizes. The amount of alimony paid each month may be useful right after
the divorce ends, but there are many circumstances in which it is no longer
enough, or possibly too much. What are you supposed to do if alimony is

Modifying Alimony: When Is It Needed?
In order to modify your alimony or spousal support order, you will likely
need to go through a significant change of circumstances for the family
law court reviewing your petition to approve it. Without there being new
financial demands or strains on you or your ex-spouse, the court might
not find enough reason to make the modification.
Significant changes of circumstance that might convince the court include:
- Receiving spouse loses employment unexpectedly.
- Receiving spouse finds gainful employment.
- Either spouse experiences a medical emergency that causes expensive medical costs.
- Either spouse remarries.
For a modification of alimony case, the argument can be brought forth by
the receiving spouse that a greater amount of alimony each month is needed.
On the contrary, the paying spouse could ask for a modification that reduces
how much alimony they pay each month. Our law firm is capable of representing
your best interests, no matter which side of alimony you stand on.
