Modifying Your Alimony
Our Colorado Divorce Lawyers Make Your Voice Heard
Why You May Need an Alimony Modification
At The Harris Law Firm, we understand that every divorcee has the right to maintain the lifestyle they had during marriage. Any alimony agreement should reflect that right, implementing enough support for both parties to enjoy a financially-stable living. In the event that your alimony is not suiting that need, either by asking too much or receiving too little, a skilled divorce attorney can help you modify your alimony agreement.
Alimony modification changes the original spousal support agreement to reflect changing circumstances or a refusal to provide payment. Part of the modification process is providing proof that circumstances have changed.
Changing circumstances are based on the three criteria that decided the spousal support agreement in the first place. These include:
- Sudden increase/decrease in income
- Change in child-rearing expenses
- Sudden loss of assets or property
The Help a Family Law Attorney Can Provide
Modifying alimony, especially if alimony is in dispute, can be an emotionally taxing process. Finding a fair solution often involves investigation and scrutiny because alimony must take all assets into account. It can be a stressful process, as one spouse is usually suffering as a result of an unfair alimony agreement. Undisclosed assets can lead to imbalanced alimony payments that do not reflect the reality of either spouse's situation.
Our lawyers can aid in this process because we are highly-skilled, highly-experienced litigators. Our negotiation tactics provide the ability to craft beneficial solutions for all parties, but our abilities as trial lawyers ensure that your voice never goes unheard. Many of the lawyers at The Harris Law Firm are skilled at discovery, the legal process by which we uncover all undisclosed information in a modification proceeding. In addition, we can bring clarity to a complex legal situation, providing peace of mind and empowering our clients. If you are suffering under an unfair spousal support agreement, contact our family law attorneys.
