While an alimony agreement can often be difficult to modify, the legal system allows for post-divorce reassessments of payment amounts. It would be unreasonable to expect someone to keep the same salary over the course of a long-term alimony payment, which can extend for the remainder of a person’s life. Under these circumstances the parties involved in alimony payments may file to modify the terms of those payments.

Grounds for Alimony Modification

Although the alimony modification process can result in another series of legal battles to reestablish alimony payments, there is a framework for divorced individuals to readdress their agreements. The following methods are the most common grounds for a reassessment of alimony payments:

  • Both parties reach an agreement
  • Urgent financial responsibilities appear
  • Economic factors such as inflation
  • One party begins to live with another person
  • Salary increase

Generally speaking, the grounds for modifying alimony describe either lifestyle changes or larger economic changes. In this sense, alimony modification can occur when changes affect the person making alimony payments, the person receiving payments, or the value of the money itself. This may result in:

  • Increasing alimony
  • Decreasing alimony

Raising or lowering alimony payments can create significant turmoil, as either attempt to modify payments carries its own set of legal arguments.
