Assisting Clients With Spousal Maintenance Modification in Kendall County, Kane County, DeKalb County, and DuPage County

Following a divorce, it goes without saying that life changes. When it does, legally defined schedules and plans can also change. In the case of alimony (also called spousal support or spousal maintenance), the obligor (payer) or obligee (receiver) can petition the court for a modification of spousal support. On a basic level, one needs to show a substantial and material change in circumstances in order to request a modification. This chance can be linked to decreased ability to pay or a substantial change in the needs of either party.

That said, when spousal maintenance is awarded, it may be modifiable or nonmodifiable, it may be set for a fixed time period, or it may be paid permanently or indefinitely. It can also be set as a fixed dollar amount of a lump-sum payout. All of these factors that affect alimony can be very complex. Each need to be considered in the context of your circumstances in order to ideally work toward modification.

Remarriage is one of the most common reasons for spousal maintenance modification. In most cases, maintenance will be terminated if the obligee gets remarried, or if they begin cohabiting with a new partner in a manner similar to marriage. If either the obligor or the obligee experience a significant change in the income they earn (such as the loss of a job or a disability that affects income-earning ability), they may petition for spousal support to be modified accordingly.
