When you get a divorce in New Jersey, you may think that the amount of alimony you receive cannot be changed once it is determined by a court. However, there are several ways that your alimony might be altered.
Your circumstances can often affect your alimony. According to LiveAbout.com, you may sometimes receive an increased amount if you have a financial emergency. This includes situations when you might have unexpected medical bills or a loss of income. Additionally, a disability can affect your financial support. You may ask to receive more money if you are unable to support yourself. In both of these situations, your alimony might be decreased if your ex-spouse is the one who experiences a financial emergency or disability.
