Often post-divorce circumstances can change, requiring the parties to revisit the spousal support either awarded by the court or agreed to by the parties in their settlement agreement. Modification of spousal support is a fairly common practice.
Alimony, also referred to as spousal support, is sometimes requested in a divorce either for a short-term, such as two years, until a party can be reasonably expected to be self-supporting, or for an indefinite time, which can continue until either party dies or the recipient remarries. The latter option is most often considered in long term marriages where there is an unconscionable disparity in incomes. There are many factors to be taken into account in determining the amount and duration of alimony, including the reasonable needs of the party seeking alimony and the other person’s ability to pay.
