To modify alimony, the party seeking the modification must demonstrate that there has been a substantial change in circumstances that was not contemplated at the time the original alimony order was entered. The substantial change in circumstances can include a change in income, loss of employment, illness or remarriage. Regardless of the reason, the process of modifying alimony through the court system can be complex and involves several steps so it is important to have an attorney that is well versed in the requirements in order to obtain a modification.
