Life changes significantly after a divorce, and a number of different events could result in the need to modify any permanent spousal maintenance awards that were given at the time of a divorce. Events such as a relocation, new job, or one spouse remarrying can all dramatically change financial standings, and thus make an existing spousal maintenance order no longer appropriate for the situation both spouses are in.
Filing for a modification can be a difficult and complex task, making having legal counsel on your side highly advised. At Cage & Miles, LLP, our San Diego family law attorneys can analyze your current divorce agreement and how your life has changed since it went into effect to help you present your case before the court.

Modifying spousal maintenance is different from appealing your divorce decision in that you are allowed to introduce new evidence to your case. However, this evidence must be significant for your case to be heard by the judge and a modification to be awarded.
