After divorce proceedings are finished and a maintenance Order has been made by the courts, if your circumstances were to change in the future then that maintenance Order can be changed if one or both parties need it to be. This can be done by agreement, but if that proves difficult then you’ll need to apply to court.
The process for formal applications to change a maintenance order are similar to that of an initial divorce settlement.
Nobody wants to be incurring legal fees unnecessarily, so from the offset you’ll want specialist advice that can help you determine whether a variation application is likely to succeed.
Our experienced team includes specialists in financial issues relating to maintenance agreements, so you can be sure that you’ll be getting the best advice on your finances every step of the way. If you make an application to vary a maintenance Order and lose then you could be ordered to pay some or all of your ex’s costs, so it is crucial that you consult a solicitor with experience in this field.
