If spousal support was ordered as part of the Divorce Decree or Judgment, either party may have the right to seek a modification of the terms so long as the award was not deemed non-modifiable originally.
Who Can Seek A Modification?
The receiving ex-spouse can seek an adjustment if the payer’s income has risen substantially.
Conversely, the payer may be able to seek to reduce or terminate spousal support if the ex-spouse has remarried or achieved financial independence.
