San Diego Decreasing Alimony Lawyers

In a divorce agreement, one spouse often has to pay the other spouse alimony after the separation. Alimony is a payment that allows the supported ex-spouse to continue living the same kind of lifestyle that he or she was living during marriage. However, there are often situations in which a modification to the alimony can be made. If you are paying alimony to your ex-spouse and have a sudden, unexpected change in your financial situation, you be able to pay a decreased amount of alimony.

If you believe that your financial circumstances have changed and that you may be eligible for a decrease in your alimony payments, we may be able to help you modify your alimony agreement to better suit your financial situation. To learn more about alimony modification, contact the San Diego decreasing alimony attorneys of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, by calling (760) 757-6854 today.

Circumstances When Alimony Can be Decreased

In order to prove to the court that you should pay a decreased alimony to your ex-spouse, you will have to prove that your financial circumstances have changed by showing the proper documentation. Some of the circumstances that could entitle you to pay decreased alimony include:

  • An unexpected change in cost of living
  • An unexpected loss of employment
  • Becoming disabled and therefore unable to work
  • Unforeseen medical bills or other expenses

These are only some of the many reasons why you may be eligible for a decrease in your alimony payment. It is important to talk to a lawyer to see if you qualify for a reduction in alimony.
