Words From Clients

  • I was referred to MacLean Chung Firm by a family friend and I would refer them to anyone else who is in need of their services. They made me feel comfortable and was always there to answer any questions I had. Thank you again for helping me get back on track!
    Aime B.
  • Great service, very informative and easy to work with. I was able to make payments, which was really helpful for me. I was kept in contact via email and text, contacted prior to my meeting of creditors with a reminder on what to bring to the hearing. It all went so smoothly, I’m so glad I chose Maclean Chung to help me through this.
    Yvette M.
  • David helped me out probably in my lowest point of life. He and his staff have been assuring and punctual, professional in every way. With their help I got my life back. I’m so glad I went to this firm and followed David’s advice. I’d strongly recommend him to anyone I know. Thank you so much!

Spousal support modifications may also arise years after a divorce judgment has been entered. We understand that you are concerned about circumstances that have altered your needs or your ability to pay the decreed amount, and the reasons for a spousal support modification includes the same reasons as child support, with some additional circumstances to consider.

Spousal support will terminate automatically upon the remarriage of the spouse receiving support, but in situations where the spouse who receives support moves in with someone but does not get remarried, you may still be able to terminate or modify support payments. California law provides that when there is cohabitation by the spouse receiving support, then the support may be modified. However, you must act immediately to get the court to modify, otherwise you will still be obligated to continue paying support to your spouse.

The court will look seriously at a change of circumstances and will act quickly to modify the original judgment to reflect these life changes. Our attorneys will always keep insure that the change of circumstances for spousal support modification are properly presented to the court. Trust us to act on your behalf.
