Spousal Support Modifications
When a divorce is settled, there may be
spousal support orders that require one spouse to make payments to the other for a certain
length of time after the divorce. This is usually the case if one spouse
makes a significant amount of money more than the other and how long the
couple was married. However, after a certain amount of time, the need
often arises for the support order to be modified. There are many reasons
why may be necessary, including:
- The spouse receiving support gets a new job, promotion, or raise, rendering
spousal support unnecessary.
- The spouse paying support loses his or her job or is no longer able to
keep up payments.
- One spouse becoming permanently disabled or otherwise unable to work.
- One spouse remarrying
These are just a few of the reasons why a spousal support modification
may be pursued. Whether you are seeking the modification or fighting against
it, you need a Deer Park divorce attorney to help fight your case. We
will fight for your best interest and make sure you do not get slammed
with a larger payment, or, on the other hand, lose the support you so
