If you have reason to believe that your spousal maintenance order should be changed, you should discuss this matter with a family law attorney as soon as possible. Whether the judgment can be adjusted may depend on factors such as the wording of the original judgment and timing. The judgment ordering spousal maintenance should stipulate whether it is reviewable and under what circumstances it may terminate.
At SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC, we know how to quickly assess and pursue modifications to spousal support. If you feel there has been a substantial change in economic or other circumstances to warrant revisiting your spousal maintenance order, we encourage you to contact us today to set up a free initial consultation at our office.
Timeliness matters in a spousal support modification. You will need to meet a deadline to petition a family law court for modification. You should demonstrate to the court why you need more maintenance or why you should pay less in your petition.
Substantial changes in circumstances of either party after a divorce may justify modifications to spousal support. A substantial increase or decrease in either or both parties’ income may be a reason to petition a family law court to change the level of support. Circumstances that usually terminate maintenance orders include cohabitation or remarriage of the party receiving support or the death of either party.
