Modifying Spousal Maintenance

Has Your Situation Changed? Our Tacoma Spousal Support Modification Attorneys Can Help

spousal supportSometimes a person’s financial situation changes and they are hopeful that their level of spousal maintenance (alimony) can be modified in family law court. It’s important to keep in mind that modifying support is seldom a simple affair, because a prior order can’t be modified unless there has been a “substantial change” of circumstances.

Defining this “substantial change” can be difficult, even for experienced Tacoma spousal support modification lawyers. Obviously, a substantial change would be something life altering, the best example of which would be losing one’s job. Other life events could also fall into this category, so if you think you qualify under these conditions it would be wise to talk to one of our Tacoma family law attorneys about the specifics of your situation.

Client Reviews
Great service and follow up. Its a scary thing when you need a lawyer but Jason and his team make it less so. Very happy with our outcome. Scott Thibeault
"I can't say enough great things about Jason Newcombe Law Office. I am retired military and I highly recommend Jason Newcombe Law Office. I reached out to Jason's office after sitting for hours reviewing multiple Domestic Violence Law Offices in King County. He responded before that day was over. I spoke with Jason's both in-person and by phone; felt very comfortable with his years of experience and straight talk. He took on my case, took me through the process with sound advice. The Attorney Erin Lane who accompanied me with my court appearances; can't praise and thank her enough for her time, selflessness and educational information prior to each court appearance. She made a really daunting task for me less fearful, given such grim circumstances. I am forever grateful for Jason and the Team of Attorneys." Tommy Harville
