When Are Alimony & Child Support Modifications Allowed?

In Georgia, post-judgment alimony and child support modifications are typically allowed when a major life change results in substantial changes in the economic condition of one or both spouses. Furthermore, modifications can only be made if no prior agreement prohibiting modifications exists.

Some common reasons people seek modifications to alimony and/or child support include:

  • Loss of employment or dramatically reduced income
  • New employment/income generation of the receiving spouse
  • One spouse begins living with another partner or remarries
  • Changes in the financial needs of the child
  • Substantial change in the financial situation of the paying spouse

It is important to note that, in the case of a child support modification, the parent requesting modification must obtain a Court Order. Additionally, a motion to modify child support payments is typically only allowed once every two years. In any instance, either the paying or receiving spouse/parent may request modifications.
