Colleyville Decreasing Alimony Lawyers

Alimony is a regular payment made by one ex-spouse to another after a divorce. Alimony is typically paid from one spouse to another when one spouse was financially dependent on the other during the marriage, and alimony is a means of continuing that support. Usually, the payments are fixed at a certain level and stay at that level indefinitely or until the spouse remarries. However, there are some circumstances which warrant a decrease in alimony.

If you are making alimony payments and have a sudden change of life circumstances, a Colleyville decreasing alimony lawyer of Alexander & Associates may be able to help you get your alimony payments lowered. To speak with an experienced attorney about your legal options, contact our offices today at 817-756-4040.

Reasons for Decreasing Alimony

When someone needs to have their alimony payments decreased, they must petition the court for a decrease. Typically, people petition the court for a decrease in alimony due to the following circumstances:

  • A workplace injury which puts them on leave
  • A sudden loss of work
  • A pay decrease
  • Unexpected medical bills
  • A change in the cost of living

When seeking a decrease in alimony, it is important to consult with an attorney about your eligibility.
