Oregon Spousal Support / Alimony Modification Lawyers
Spousal support may be modified any time there has been a substantial and unanticipated change in financial circumstances. This may be when someone loses a job, gains new employment, has a dramatic change in their health, remarries, or other circumstance. For support to be modified or terminated, the court must determine that the purpose for the original spousal support award has been met. For example, if the purpose of spousal support was to allow a spouse to obtain training in a new career, then the court must find that the spouse has obtained the training needed before modifying or terminating support.
Contact our experienced family law lawyers to determine whether spousal support may need to be modified or terminated in your case.
What To Expect In A Legal Consultation
As a service to clients, we meet with all potential clients in person, preferably with two attorneys, for the first consultation. This allows us to determine which lawyer is best-suited for any given case, based on the subject matter and the client’s personality. In addition to the client getting two-for-the-price-of-one, this allows both lawyers to meet potential clients and hear the background of each case. Although ultimately only one lawyer will handle the case, the other will then know the basics of each case and can answer questions when a client calls. We offer this initial consultation for a flat-fee of $100.00.
