Can alimony payments change?
Yes. Alimony, or spousal support payments, almost always change due to changes in the respective incomes of the paying or receiving ex-spouses. For instance, if the receiving spouse no longer needs financial support, either due to remarrying or getting a new job, then his or her alimony payments may be reduced or ended. Alternatively, if need increases, then payments might also increase. Texas specifically tries to use spousal support payments in a rehabilitative manner, helping a financially dependent spouse eventually achieve financial independence, which can result in significant changes in payments over time.
