Oregon Spousal Support Modification Lawyers
Spousal support (referred to as “alimony” in other states) 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. An Oregon spousal support modification lawyer can help you discuss your situation and how the court may interpret your specific changes in circumstance.
Contact our experienced Oregon spousal support modification lawyers to determine whether support (alimony) may need to be modified or terminated in your case.
What To Expect In An Consultation About Oregon Spousal Support
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.
When starting the process for finding a lawyer, potential clients often ask “who is the best lawyer in Oregon for spousal support modification” or the “who is the best alimony lawyer in Portland?” The answer is: the lawyer who gets the results you need.
