Spousal Support Modification

Spousal Support Modification can happen, as either party can petition the other to go back to court to make a change.

What are acceptable reasons to petition the courts though?

  • The Spousal Support Recipient has had a promotion, disability, or medical issue.
  • Spousal Support Recipient is living with a new partner or cohabitating, possibly even with a same sex friend, if the home/rent expenses are shared.
  • The payor has a major life change in job, disability, or medical issue that is NOT his fault.
