Modified Alimony

A substantial change in need or a substantial change in ability to pay can result in a post judgment modification of alimony. Examples of events or circumstances resulting in possible modification include disability, change in living arrangements (cohabitation or remarriage), costs of living adjustments, or change in law, just to name a few. A party must show that there has been a substantial and material change of circumstances, unforeseen at the time of divorce and that the change warrants a change in alimony. Not all types of alimony are modifiable.
