Case: Petition to Increase Rehabilitative Alimony
Result: Petition to Increase Alimony Denied
Details: Melanie defended a Husband against his former Wife who sought to increase and extend her rehabilitative alimony award from 60 months to 120 months. Melanie successfully defeated the Petition of the spouse proving that the former Wife had no change circumstances to seek the modification. Melanie provided the Court with evidence that Husband had no additional ability to pay, that Wife’s expenses had actually decreased since the alimony award, that Wife’s income had increased since the alimony award, and that Wife was quite possibly limiting her employment hours in an effort to appear that she had not been sufficiently rehabilitated.
