Can I change the amount of alimony?

Under Florida divorce law, alimony payments may be modified if there has been a substantial change in circumstances of either party. The modification can either increase, decrease, or terminate the alimony paid to an ex-spouse.

If my ex-spouse remarried will alimony terminate?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

In many instances, remarriage can be grounds to modify or terminate alimony. Additionally, being in a supportive relationship may be enough to terminate alimony, even if they have not married. However, modification of alimony will depend on the specific facts of each individual case.

I can no longer afford alimony.

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

If you need to lower or stop alimony, a petition to modify alimony should be filed. Florida law does not allow a person to unilaterally change the terms of alimony, even if they have a legitimate basis to do so. Therefore, if a change is needed you should seek approval from the court.
