Changing Spousal Support in Turkey
Legal grounds for dissolution of marriage are divided into two groups: special and general. Sections 161 to 166 of the Turkish Civil Law Code define those legal grounds as follows: the special legal grounds are adultery, deliberate attempt to kill, maltreatment, humiliating behavior, committing a crime, unreasonable behavior, desertion, mental disease; the general legal grounds are incompatibility, coming to a mutual agreement on divorce, and living apart for three years after an application for dissolution of marriage has been denied by the court. Once a Family Court makes its decision, it can be appealed at First Instance Appeal Court (Bolge Istinaf Mahkemesi) after that it can be appealed at Turkish Supreme Court (Yargitay).
A change in circumstances may allow you to increase, reduce or end your spousal support obligations. The court sets a high threshold for what qualifies for an amended order. You must prove that the change of circumstance is material, significant, unforeseen and continuous — for example, remarriage, a disability or involuntary unemployment. Although the court may order retroactive reduction in payment, you are obliged to pay the current amount until the court orders otherwise. Istanbul Divorce suggests consulting with our firm as soon as you encounter a hardship that jeopardizes your ability to pay.
Our family lawyers also may request a review of your order from time-to-time following your divorce. You do not need to prove a changed circumstance; you must only prove that the amount of support no longer makes sense. Your spouse might now earn a high income, for instance.
