Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thanks for your question. Under Pennsylvania law you can revisit the issue and ask for modification of the terms of the alimony.
A substantial change in circumstance, such as illness, retirement, or loss of income, can be grounds for the court to grant a modification or termination of the payment.
You may need a lawyer to present our case in this matter. You really have little to loose here and maybe a lot to gain. It sounds like there may have been substantial change in circumstances based on the facts that you provide.
The court will look at both your circumstances and hers. An attorney could help you file the necessary motion and prepare and argue this case for you. It is important to have a lawyer in this matter to have a successful outcome. Having al ayer in Pennsylvania makes sense logistically as well. I hope this helps give you some ideas and good luck to you..
