I’ve Remarried And Need To Pay Less In Alimony Because Of My New Circumstances. How Hard Is It To Modify A Spousal Maintenance Order In Queens?

It isn’t a sure thing that courts will allow a modification based on remarriage, but it isn’t outside the realm of possibility either.

Generally, judges in Queens are hesitant to make changes based on choices you’ve made, rather than events outside of your control, such as job loss or serious illness.
That said, the circumstances of your new marriage and family may allow for the judge to exercise some discretion.

Consulting with an experienced Queens divorce attorney is the only way to get a feel for the likelihood of prevailing.
