Modifying Spousal Support in California

Helping Clients in Rancho Cucamonga Modify an Alimony Order

Spousal support, or alimony, is established to allow both individuals equal maintenance of their lifestyle. But life can be unpredictable, even changing from day to day. What worked at one moment may not work in the future. The same goes for divorce and family court orders. When situations change, exes will have to file for a modification in spousal support.

Our legal team at Family Law Advocacy Group has years of experience in helping divorced clients modify alimony arrangements. Our California spousal support modification attorneys will work hard to make sure your arrangement reflects your current needs.

Common Reasons To Modify a Spousal Support Order

There can be many reasons why a couple may need to change their spousal support, including:

  • The spouse paying the support losses their job or has a decrease in income
  • The receiving spouse no longer needs the support
  • There is suspicion that the spouse receiving the support is not making an earnest effort to become self-sufficient

How To Modify Your Spousal Support Agreement

1. Fill Out the Appropriate Forms

Just like any other legal matter, there are forms that need to be filled out before you can move forward. Depending on what type of modification you are looking for, there are different forms appropriate for the situation.

Here are some common forms you may need to fill out:

2. Have Forms Reviewed and Make Copies

Before submitting any form of paperwork or legally binding document, you want to make sure to have your divorce attorney review the information. You do not want to cheat yourself of anything. Once you are sure of the information, make at least 2 copies.

3. File Forms with the Court

In order to receive a court date, you will need to file your paperwork with the court clerk. They will place the forms where they need to go.

4. Get a Court Date

After you file the necessary documents, you will receive a date to go to court. Make note of it!

5. Serve Your Ex the Papers and File Proof

Have someone besides yourself serve your ex with the spousal support modification papers.

Be sure to include the following blank forms:

  • Responsive Declaration to Request for Order
  • Income and Expense Declaration

After your ex is served, they need to fill out and return a Proof of Service by Mail form.

6. Go to Court

Go to your court hearing and present your paperwork and proof to the court. Consider legal representation to present your case.
