Deer Park Spousal Support Modifications Lawyer

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 desperately need.
