Spousal Support Modifications

Virginia Spousal Support Modification

Reliable Divorce Attorney in Northern Virginia

If you have experienced a substantial financial change and are now under financial strain, you may be able to seek a spousal support modification to receive more financial support from your ex-spouse or pay less to him or her, depending on your situation. Many people mistakenly believe that the original divorce terms can never be modified, but in certain situations the court will grant modifications to spousal support. Please be aware that this is not the case if you entered into a written agreement which provided that the terms of spousal support are "non-modifiable" in all circumstances.

You may be able to modify your spousal support arrangement if you suffer an unexpected illness or loss of income. Losing a job, disability, and a change in work hours are some of the most common reasons that divorced spouses seek a spousal support modification. On the other hand, if your ex-spouse experiences a significant salary increase, that could also warrant a change in the amount of support.
