Alabama Spousal Support Modification Attorneys
Courts in the state of Alabama allow for the modification of certain types of alimony (spousal support) when substantial changes have occurred in the life of one or both of the spouses following a divorce. These changes may be to either party and may affect the ability to pay alimony as ordered by the court, or alternatively, changes that impact the need for continued spousal support.
When changes are needed, proper steps should be taken to ensure that they are done legally. At the law firm of Gina H. McDonald & Associates, in Birmingham, our experienced lawyers can help you achieve the outcome you need in the modification of an alimony order. Our family law attorneys will take the time to understand your goals and do what we can to meet those goals in an effective manner.
Birmingham Modification of Alimony Lawyers
Significant changes in financial standing may include unemployment, bankruptcy, a medical crisis, relocation or other unforeseen circumstances. These circumstances may be valid grounds to increase, decrease or even terminate spousal support payments. The existence of a "supportive relationship" may also be grounds for the termination of alimony without needing to show a change in financial circumstances.
If you feel your circumstances warrant such a change, we invite you to speak with us as soon as possible to make sure that your rights are upheld.
