Helping Crestline Spouses Obtain Needed Support
During a divorce, one spouse can seek spousal support, or alimony, from the other. It is also notable that a spousal support order issued a few years ago may not be adequate or may no longer be needed. This is where spousal support modification and termination may be pursued. A qualified spousal support attorney can assist with this process.
Modifying or Terminating Spousal Support in Crestline
Securing a family law attorney to assist you with modifying or terminating a spousal support order is essential. A family law attorney is able to best advise you on whether an order can be modified or terminated.
Oftentimes, an order will have specific provisions giving the supported spouse conditions he or she has to fulfill, or giving a timeframe for when the spousal support will end. Additionally, circumstances can change warranting a change in the alimony being paid each month.
To modify a support order, the spouse has to show that there has been a change in circumstances since the support order was made. A change in circumstances must be significant. Some factors that may warrant a modification include:
- Change in income
- Lack of a good faith effort to become self-supporting
- No longer needing support
If the spouses or partners can agree on a modification, the parties can submit their agreement to a family law judge. However, if the parties cannot agree, a motion for modification of the spousal support amount must be filed.
The same process of filing a motion must be followed if one desires to end a support order, unless the order has a specific end date or terms.

A year and a half ago, before I hired Ms. Holcomb, my ex and I tried to handle the divorce ourselves using the assistance of one of those “divorce mill” attorneys (Uncontested Divorce). My understanding is that these specific attorneys don’t side wit…
