How Can Alimony Be Modified?

Listen as Kissimmee family law attorney, Linda Gruszynski explains how an alimony award can be modified.

Alimony can be changed by filing a supplemental petition to modify the alimony award. Additionally, we will need to provide evidence that there was a substantial change in circumstances that is permanent and was not considered or expected during the original award or the most recent modification.

Another important factor to consider is whether the receiving party has entered into a supportive relationship. In other words, is the recipient now residing with or sharing funds with another person, and essentially receiving financial support from that person? If so, alimony can be reduced or terminated. Watch the video to learn more.

Testimonials

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
