Modifying Spousal Maintenance in Bellevue

If you're struggling to make ends meet after getting divorced, it may be possible to seek a modification of spousal support. There are two scenarios relative to this issue:

  • You want to increase the amount of alimony you receive from your ex.
  • You want to decrease the amount of alimony you pay to an ex.

No matter which scenario applies to you, it's important to understand that modifying spousal maintenance is never easy. There are specific laws in Washington that apply to changes in alimony, and our Bellevue spousal support modification lawyers can help you understand how they apply to your situation.

Washington Law states that spousal support amounts may only be modified when there is a “significant change in circumstances.” Obviously, there is a lot of gray area in this definition, and the court will ultimately decide whether the modification is upheld or denied. Some situations that could qualify as a significant change in circumstances include:

  • Debilitating health problems or illness
  • Loss of employment
  • Other situations that cause major financial distress

To find out whether your situations qualifies for a modification in alimony, contact one of our Bellevue spousal maintenance lawyers today. We will help you address this issue while working diligently to protect your legal rights.
