The standard you will need to show in order to modify the final judgment alimony amount will be a "substantial change in circumstances." It seems like you would have a good argument to at least modify the alimony amount down by an amount determined by the evidence presented and the judgment of the court. Speak with an attorney in your area who handles alimony and family matters for a more detailed explanation of what legal remedies you may have. A consultation in which you provide all details and copies of all final divorce documents (such as a marital settlement agreement and final judgment of divorce) will go a long way in guiding you in your next step. Good luck.

Discuss your case with a family law attorney. If your income is significantly dropping then you may be able to go to court and seek a modification of the existing order to reduce the current payment. Good luck.
