Two Things To Know About Requesting A Spousal Support Modification:
1. Circumstances Where Alimony Judgments Can Be Modified
You may request a modification to alimony amounts, payment schedules, or a termination of the order in its entirety under the following circumstances:
- There has been a change in either party’s income.
- Alimony recipient lives with a partner or has since remarried.
- Your alimony payments have reached the durational limits under the statute.
- Other material changes warrant a modification.
2. How To Request A Change To Spousal Support
If you and your spouse agree that a judgment or order should be adjusted, you may file a joint petition with the court. If you and your spouse disagree, you must file a complaint for modification of alimony. If you wish to adjust the alimony amounts, you are also required to file a financial statement. If you wish to avoid litigation, changes to alimony may also be settled through mediation.
