Maintenance Modification

Spousal support and maintenance are subject to change depending on a variety of factors. The court will take into account events such as changes in income, changes in employment status, changes in the welfare of either party, and several other changes as well. The court will make financial alterations accordingly and only after all evidence from both sides has been presented. Our Aurora divorce attorneys have extensive experience with handling these types of cases and we know exactly what is being looked for when the court is determining payment amounts.

Understanding Maintenance Modifications

In order to support a maintenance modification request, the spouse seeking the modification must show a "substantial change in circumstances."

For example, if any one of the following is present:

  • Change in income
  • Employment change — job loss, new job
  • Change in health — illness, disability, debilitating injury
  • Change in financial obligations
  • Supportive relationship — a remarriage, living with a boyfriend/girlfriend

If you are seeking to modify a maintenance order, you must first file the appropriate motions with the court and then specify what your "substantial change of circumstances" are in order to justify a modification of the current maintenance obligation order. Furthermore, keep in mind that any modification is effective only upon installments accruing after notice to the other party.
