Modification of Spousal Support in Florida

How an Alimony Attorney Can Help

In today's chaotic economic climate, sudden unemployment or a change in jobs can cause a substantial change in one spouse's financial status. There are a number of circumstances recognized by Florida's courts that permit a decrease, increase or even the termination of alimony payments. If a spouse who has been ordered to pay spousal support / alimony following a Florida divorce finds that his or her financial circumstances have changed, he or she may wish to seek a modification of the divorce judgment.

Even if a couple agrees that a change is in order, the court will not recognize it unless a supplemental petition is filed and ruled upon.

If you have questions about your spousal support payments or feel there is a legitimate reason to seek a modification you should first speak to a lawyer at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. Unexpected medical emergencies, bankruptcy, or even the existence of a new and "supportive relationship" of the one receiving alimony can be grounds for a modification. When you call our office and arrange for an initial consultation, you will meet with a lawyer who can answer your questions and review your case. We can then advise you on your legal options and take the necessary steps with you.

Amend Your Spousal Support Pick Porter!™

If you are paying support and your ex-spouse is currently cohabitating with someone who is supporting him or her, you may be able to reduce or end your support payments. There are certain facts that must be proven to the court to substantiate such a claim. If you reach retirement and you income drops dramatically, you may be able to reduce or end your payments, as well.

If your ex-spouse experiences a significant increase in his or her income it is possible to seek an increase in alimony based on his or her new financial status. There are other situations that may require a temporary change in support, such as a lengthy hospital stay or a prison sentence, but merely losing a job is usually not considered a sufficient reason for a modification

    "Although I hope to never need their services again, if I do, I will definitely be giving them a call."
    First and foremost, everyone from staff to the attorneys are all great!! I first started with the firm in 2015 and due to my own circumstances, I was unable to complete the needed court requirements in order to finalize my case. The amount I paid to retain an attorney was placed in a trust and they assured me it would be there until I completed my requirements. 4 years later they kept their word and finalized my case once I completed my needed court requirement. Everything was professional and in a timely fashion on their behalf. They also found a second issue that needed to be resolved and also completed that for me. Although I hope to never need their services again, if I do, I will definitely be giving them a call. Thank you, everyone!

    "Highly recommend him if you need legal advice"
    Mr. Porter is an excellent attorney. He helped me and my teenage son through a very difficult situation. He was right there immediately ensuring we had representation. He even called to follow up to ensure we were ok. He is very passionate about helping his clients. He also does not try to charge you if he knows you don’t have a case. He’s very honest and a great person. Highly recommend him if you need legal advice. Kelley

    "Throughout the whole process, he was responsive and dedicated and he made it seem like I was the only case he was dealing with."
    I recently worked with Jonathan Thacher and am very pleased with the outcome of the case. Throughout the whole process, he was responsive and dedicated and he made it seem like I was the only case he was dealing with. He was on top of getting the necessary measure taken and the end result was outstanding. I would definitely refer anyone to him! Thank you so much, Jonathan!!

    "Thanks for everything!"
    I had contacted Mr. Porter’s office after being in a car accident and having no success on my own with the insurance adjusters. Mr. Porter and his entire staff were all very engaged, expedient and supportive while working on my case. Any questions that I had, I could make a phone call and Hildy or Dani would be on the other end making things make sense to me. Ultimately, they delivered a great outcome that I was happy with. It was a huge weight off my shoulders to have the knowledge and support of Mr. Porter and his staff while navigating through the stress of everything that must be handled after a car accident. In the unfortunate event that I find myself in another similar situation, I won’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give them a call back! Thanks for everything!

    "I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough."
    Jason Porter has helped me on two separate occasions and both times his attention to detail really impressed me. His staff is wonderful and easy to work with. The second time I worked with Jason Porter, he turned what I thought was a hopeless situation into a miracle. He literally got me my life back by getting the charges reduced. His experience as a trial lawyer came in handy when he had to work with the district attorney to change the judge's mind on my case. Jason Porter has a calming demeanor and he instilled confidence when going over the details of my case. I tended to be pessimistic, but Jason Porter would always reassure me and keep me positive. I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough for all that he has done for me and my family. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I know I can count on Jason Porter to give me my best chance at a favorable outcome.

    "Mr. Porter was very friendly and knowledgeable."
    Mr. Porter helped me in 2010 with a Breach of Contract case in which he was able to recover my earned commissions from my former employer. Mr. Porter was very friendly and knowledgeable in the area of Non Compete agreements which allowed for a quick settlement from my former employer. The staff was great and addressed my issues and questions in a timely fashion. I would recommend Mr. Porter to anyone that has a case in the areas he practices in.
