If you are the payor of an alimony award, you may be eligible to request modification if you have been subject to substantial permanent or temporary long-term loss of income, if you have retired or your children are no longer minors.
The circumstances of the recipient of an alimony award also play a major factor in determining if modification of alimony is possible. For example, if the recipient had a major, permanent change in their income or have received an inheritance, gift or award that significantly changes their financial circumstances a modification of alimony is often granted for those events. Also, if you are paying alimony and believe that your ex-spouse is currently in a supportive relationship with someone else, alimony may be reduced or completely terminated.
