Modification of Alimony Lawyers
Receive the Help You Need for Your Tampa Family Law Case
Sometimes alimony agreements need to be changed as the years go on and circumstances evolve for both the receiving and the paying spouses. If you or your spouse is receiving permanent alimony and either one of your circumstances is significantly changed, you will probably want to discuss changing the amount of the alimony that you are receiving or paying. You may even want to take steps to terminate the support altogether.
Changes that may require a modification of alimony include, but are not limited to:
- Change in income
- Loss of job and income
At Givens Givens Sparks, our Tampa alimony modification attorneys can help you take the proper steps to have the alimony arrangement legally modified. Florida courts will want to see that circumstances have changed for either you or your spouse. The courts will look at the original marital standard of living as one of the standards on which to judge changes and modifications. If the paying spouse has received a significant increase of income and he or she can now pay an amount that is closer to the standard achieved, then the court might order an increase of spousal support.

There are instances that might require ending the spousal support. For example, if the dependent spouse enters into a supportive relationship with another person, the court could order the termination of spousal support. Of course, if the dependent person gets remarried, the spousal support is not normally legally required to continue.
