Planning around spousal support issues in divorce, P.1

We’ve been looking in recent posts at modification of spousal support orders, and particularly what types of circumstances might justify a modification. The issue is a potentially important one, since it can impact a couple’s financial life well after a divorce has been finalized.

What changes in circumstances would justify modifying a spousal support order?

Previously, we began looking at the issue of modifying a spousal support order in the state of Washington. As we noted, a spousal support order may not be modified unless there has been a “substantial change of circumstances.” Obvious examples of this are death, remarriage, and registration of a new domestic partnership—which actually terminate a spousal support order by law—but substantial change of circumstances need not go that far to justify modification.
