Hello and welcome,What is the basis for modifying alimony? Are you the payor spouse or payee spouse? Does your divorce decree indicate under what circumstances alimony may be modified?

I am the payer. $2,000 until death was order. I've sold business awarded to me and have zero earning income. My tax return 2014 is net $24,000 for year. I am filing for disability now from accident I had

I see. Thank you for sharing this additional information.Yes, an order of alimony or spousal support can typically be modified based on significantly changed circumstances. You would need to file a motion to modify the order and prove to the court that your income has been significantly decreased as compared to the circumstances when the order was entered. A showing that the payee spouse's need for income has diminished would normally also assist you, but is not necessary if you can prove that your income has decreased significantly.Here is a link which provides additional information on this issue for your reference:http://www.endspousalsupport.com/general/important-cases-and-code-sections-relating-to-spousal-support.htm
