Job loss and spousal support

In recent years, some people have found themselves out of work for one reason or another. In Peoria, and across Illinois, labor market conditions can make it tricky for people in this position to find more work. If you have recently lost your job, you may be wondering how to handle your responsibilities, such as paying your bills and continuing to make your spousal support payments. Our law office understands the stress and uncertainty that people going through this may experience and it is critical for you to explore your different options.

From custody matters to the distribution of marital property, the divorce process can be overwhelming. If you are required to pay spousal support, you may be worried about your ability to continue making payments in the event that you are laid off, fired, or decide to step down from your position. If your income has changed significantly, you may not be able to keep paying the amount of alimony that you have been ordered to. However, you may be able to modify your spousal support order.

When it comes to spousal support modification, each case is different, so you should be prepared to prove that your financial circumstances have changed significantly. If you are required to make child support payments, you may also be able to modify your child support order. If you visit our spousal maintenance page, you will be able to read more on spousal support payments and other topics that people dealing with legal issues involving alimony may encounter.
