In most divorce cases, an alimony agreement is made in order to ensure that both spouses are able to support themselves after the separation. Alimony amounts are set based on your current incomes, how long you were married, the physical and emotional health of each party, and the kind of lifestyle you were accustomed to during your marriage along with numerous other factors. Your alimony terms aren’t set in stone, though. In some case, a judge may agree that a major life event requires that your alimony payment amount be changed. Our Morris County divorce lawyer can help you with this process.
Major life events that could change the amount of alimony you are paying or receiving include:
- Loss of job
- Promotion at a job
- Major illness
These aren’t the only reasons a judge may decide to change the amount of alimony being paid, and our Morris County divorce lawyer will help you determine whether or not you have a valid claim. The most common reason for an alimony adjustment is that the payee begins living with a new partner. If you discover that your former spouse is now living with a new partner, contact our divorce lawyer right away. We’ll start the process to help you lower or stop your alimony payments right away.
