Wichita Modification of Alimony Attorney

After a lengthy and emotionally taxing divorce proceeding, no client wants to go back to court to change any aspect of their divorce order.  But the fact is sometimes modifications are necessary, especially with matters of child custody, child support, and alimony.  If you have experienced some sort of change in income, the Wichita family lawyer can help you request a modification of your alimony order. 

There are three primary types of alimony in the state of Kansas:

The primary purpose of spousal support is to help the less financially advantaged spouse transition into their new life apart from their former marriage.  Sometimes if there is a major change in income for either of the parties, there are legal grounds to request a modification in alimony.  If for instance a spouse was being paid a certain amount of dollars per month but he or she has gotten a new higher paying job or has gotten remarried, the paying spouse has legal grounds to request a modification.

On the other side of the aisle, if a client experiences a sudden increase in expenses such as an increased mortgage rate, this client has legal grounds to petition for an increased amount of alimony. 

Clients should be aware that a modification in alimony is never guaranteed.  These financial disputes are always up to the discretion of the judge.  For this reason, you should appoint a lawyer that can build the strongest case possible on your behalf.

If you would like to potentially request a change in your alimony agreement, contact the law office of the Wichita family lawyer today.
