If you were recently divorced and a Brooklyn judge ordered you to pay spousal support to your ex-wife or husband but you have recently lost some or all of your income, you need to seek an alimony modification. The longer you wait to request a modification, the harder your financial situation will likely become. Don’t allow yourself to get behind on your payments, because spousal support is a legal obligation and you could possibly end up in jail for failing to make payments.
Keep in mind when considering going to court for a spousal support modification that, without a good attorney, you may not get the alimony order reduced enough or even at all. It is up to the judge whether he or she feels the order should be modified. You can certainly save money by representing yourself in court, but in a case involving something as important as spousal support, you need an experienced attorney’s assistance.
