Modifying Alimony Post-Divorce

Alimony, otherwise known as spousal support, is a sensitive and contentious issue in many divorces. Having a strong advocate on your side always helps to ensure your rights and best interests are protected under all circumstances.

It is important to note that in those situations where the spouses have expressly waived the ability to modify alimony, no legal action can be taken. However, if no such waiver exists, the parties may pursue a modification of alimony if there is a substantial change in circumstances, such as unemployment, serious illness or remarriage.

Only the amount of alimony may be modified, not the length of time it is to be paid.

At F. Marian Weeks, P.C., Attorneys at Law, we understand that significant changes in your life can create a need to modify alimony or even the need for termination of alimony. We work to help facilitate changes through compassionate legal counsel and determined representation.
