A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of the February 2020 webcast, Retirement and Modification of Spousal Support in Virginia: Interpreting the Recent Changes to §§20-107.1 and 20-109 of the Code of Virginia .

Prior to the July 2018 revisions to §§20-107.1 and 20-109 of the Code of Virginia, a payor spouse contemplating retirement had no idea whether retirement constituted a material change of circumstances sufficient to seek modification of spousal support, much less whether a court would provide any relief from the pre-retirement spousal support payment level. Simply put, the state of the law left room for interpretation by the courts and those interpretations often yielded harsh results.

In this informative seminar, family law attorney Julie Hottle Day reviews, in detail, the recent changes to the Code of Virginia regarding how retirement can now impact a spousal support award. Julie provides suggested language for attorneys to use in drafting agreements to comply with the changes, and provides a handy chart to help with tracking which of the statutory factors may or must be considered in a modification proceeding, and when they need not be so considered. Julie also reviews the “full retirement age” requirement and discusses the question of the retroactive application of the statutory changes.
