Modify Alimony Orders in Wisconsin

When circumstances change significantly modifications can be made to alimony

modify wisconsin alimony orders
Both the person paying and receiving spousal support are entitled to ask for a change. However, the court won't modify anything unless there is a substantial change in circumstances for one or both parties.Some common examples include the sudden loss of a job or an increase in the cost of living. In a similar way, if an ex-spouse receiving support moves in with a boyfriend or girlfriend the person paying may be able to justify a change in circumstances for the other person and lower payments.

In some circumstances, even a substantial change in income may not be sufficient reason to modify payments. This is especially true in cases where the person paying alimony pays a percentage. For example, if the payer is paying 10% of their income to the other spouse, the judge may decide that just because income is reduced does not mean the percentage should change.

In the end, everything will be determined by the circumstances of your divorce case.

Whatever the situation, when financial changes occur, ensure you know your rights. Work together with your attorney to make sure all factors in your life are taken into account so your alimony order is a fair, equitable alimony order.
