Houston Modification of Spousal Support Lawyers

Experienced, Effective, & Excellent Legal Care

Depending on the details of a divorce settlement, one former spouse may be ordered to make payments to the other. Spousal support is initially awarded when one spouse makes far more money than the other at the time of divorce. However, the paying spouse is not expected to indefinitely adhere to this order, as he or she may petition to have it readdressed in hopes of having it modified or even terminated, contingent on the circumstances. Our Houston modification of spousal support lawyers of Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law are prepared to aggressively fight for a positive outcome on your behalf, whether you are the one expecting or making payments. If one party requires more support or, conversely, can no longer keep up with payments, he or she will need to file a motion with the county clerk. Next, both spouses must present evidence that is strong enough to warrant any changes.

The following are common examples which necessitate a modification of spousal support order:

  • The paying spouse’s income decreases drastically
  • The payee spouse gets a new job, promotion or raise
  • The payee spouse remarries or cohabitates with another person
  • Either spouse endures a medical emergency which prevents payment
  • Either spouse is permanently disabled and unable to work
