Paying spousal support after a costly health crisis

Divorce can bring on many different financial changes, such as managing your finances independently. Some people may have new financial obligations in the wake of their divorce, such as spousal support payments. Whether you are unsure of how much spousal support you will be obligated to pay or you are struggling with making spousal support payments on time due to challenges you are going through, such as a health crisis that has been physically and financially demanding, it is pivotal to know which options you may have.

There are many different types of health crises that can completely unravel a person’s life. From a physical and emotional point of view, these health challenges can be extremely draining. From a financial perspective, they can be disastrous, not only because of costly medical bills and expenses related to therapy but missing work as well. Some health problems are so serious that they prompt people to stay off the job or weeks or even months. Sometimes, people never have the ability to return to their field following a major health issue.

Whether you are buried in medical debt or you have had to struggle with lost wages or a lower earning ability, our law firm knows that this can make it incredibly hard to pay spousal support. You may be able to modify your spousal support order and it is important for you to do what you can to stay current. For example, some people benefit from creating a payment plan and carefully watching their finances.

Each time I met with Dianne she was concerned for my well being, and was sincerely empathetic about my situation. She made a horrible chapter in my life bearable.
