Do You Need to Modify a Court-Ordered Alimony Payment?

If a significant change has occurred in your life and you feel that you need to modify an existing alimony order, you can request a modification from the court. Generally, a court will review both ex-spouses’ current economic circumstances to determine significant changes have occurred that are enough to warrant the modification of alimony.

The judge may decide that an increase or decrease is justified if there has been a substantial change in circumstance, such as:

  • The loss of a job
  • An increase in cost of living
  • Illness
  • Disability

Either party has the right to request a modification of alimony, but it is advised that you do not attempt such a request without guidance and representation from a qualified New Jersey attorney. Whether the court will approve the modification will based on many factors and if full documentation and compelling reasons are not presented to the court, the request could be denied.
