    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Unless the decree states that the alimony term cannot be modified, the court can continue the alimony payments upon a showing of a substantial change in circumstances. You have to make a motion to modify. At the hearing you have to produce evidence that there has been a substantial change since the entry of the original order granting you alimony. You could argue that your failure to secure employment despite diligent efforts to do so, is a change that may warrant an extension. It is important that you present proper proof and it would be best to have an attorney represent you.
