Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be helping you resolve your matter.

Please remember there may be a delay as I may be helping other customers....was the support non-modifiable? also, when did the 2nd appeals rule against you??
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
not modifiable, and ruled on 10-31-2008.
Whether the divorce was fault or not has no bearing on the issue of permanent spousal support being changed. It is not modifiable and an appeals court ruled against you 4 years ago, so the chances of you getting it changed are almost impossible. When it is modifiable you have to show a substantial change in circumstances to get it changed or terminated but when it is not modifiable, it means just that...NOT modifiable. I'm sorry but I see no way for you to get it terminated. I hope this helps clarify.
