If you have been adversely affected by COVID-19, know that you have options when it comes to your support obligations. Alimony is always modifiable in the event that there has been a change of circumstance. This means that if your employment situation has changed, you may have the option to reduce your current payment. Any modification made can be retroactive to the date of filing, so it is important to file as soon as possible if your circumstances have changed. Doing so can prevent you from overpaying and help to alleviate some of the financial stress that you may be facing.
Court procedures have recently changed as a result of this pandemic and navigating the process of filing for a modification can be difficult on your own. If you have experienced a significant change in your income, and are seeking to reduce your support obligation, please contact us.
