On occasion, the terms of a financial settlement may need to be altered, or ‘varied’, at a point after the original Order was made; this is called a Variation order.

For example, if one party has been ordered to pay spousal maintenance and they subsequently lose their job, this may be a good reason to vary or suspend the maintenance Order. This is only one example and there are many situations that can arise, resulting in the potential to vary a financial Order.

The variation of a financial Order can be agreed between parties by consent or by making an application to the court. The court has the power to vary or discharge the Order concerned, or to suspend temporarily (and later revive) any provision of the Order.

We are able to provide an affordable service to help you apply for a variation and help you in your current financial situation. To find out more about our incredible value representation, head to our Contact Us page.
