Making the decision to get a divorce is difficult, as it doesn't just involve the splitting up of two people. It can also include the division of possessions, alimony, and child custody and support payments. Even though you can make an arrangement for alimony in the beginning of your divorced life, it is possible that one or another partner can request modification of alimony.
This can occur several years after a couple has been divorced when one partner finds himself (or herself) unable to either make spousal support payments or live on the agreed-upon payments. When this happens the affected party will seek alimony modification. There are many reasons why this could arise, such as when a spouse loses their job; or someone could get a better job, prompting the paying party to demand lower alimony payments.
If you are curious about seeking modification of alimony, either to reduce payments or to ask for higher payments, you need the legal assistance and advice of a Jacksonville family law attorney. Don't wait to contact Ellerin Hutchinson to get our legal team involved.
