Job loss and alimony payments

Whether you were laid off due to the seasonal nature of your line of work or you were fired for an unexpected reason, moving forward after the loss of your job can be very challenging. Worse yet, you may face financial difficulties that prevent you from paying bills, staying current on your child support or paying alimony. Our law firm knows how upsetting this can be for people in Peoria, and cities across Illinois. However, it is vital for you to promptly go over your options if you are struggling with making your monthly spousal support payments.

If you have experienced a significant change in your financial circumstances, you could be able to have your spousal support order modified. By doing so, your payments could be lowered, becoming more compatible with your current income. You may also want to explore modification if you were seriously hurt and your injury has reduced your earning potential, if your hours were substantially cut or your financial affairs have been upended for another reason. 

After losing a job or experiencing financial hardships for another reason, you might feel overwhelmed and uncertain of how to address your situation. However, you should not wait to take action. If you are able to successfully modify your spousal support order, you could benefit from monthly payments that are more compatible with your financial position and the peace of mind that lower payments often provide.

Over on our spousal maintenance page, you can access more material that is related to the modification of spousal support orders.
