If you think you are paying too much maintenance or you are not receiving enough, whether it be for children or your spouse, then you will need to apply to the court to vary the maintenance order.
Our solicitor will draft all of the information needed to apply for an application to vary maintenance order, ready for you to file at court.
When can a maintenance order be varied by the court?
Generally the only ground upon which you can apply to make variation application for a spousal maintenance order is if there has been a significant financial change of circumstances, such as losing your job or becoming ill or the other party has had similar changes.
Sometimes a man may have formed another relationship and had more children, which affects their ability to continue paying maintenance at the rate they have been.
On a variation of maintenance application, a judge can vary the maintenance downwards, upwards, suspend or cease the order. They can also roll the maintenance up into a lump sum if there is sufficient capital.
An application will need to be made to the court on a Form A and pay the court filing fee of £240.00. Both parties will also need to file a new Form E disclosure document detailing their current income and assets.
Our experienced and qualified Solicitors will prepare your application to vary a maintenance order made in a divorce county court together with the affidavit in support for you and support you in the proceedings, thereby saving you hundreds of pounds on expensive lawyer’s fees.
