 DivorceNet - Duty to Support Spouse After Sex Change Operation
The Ohio Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's denial of the husband's motion for relief, finding that the former wife's sex change did not amount to sufficient changed circumstances to warrant modification of the husband's support obligation.
The court did, however, note that, if the girlfriend began cohabiting with the former wife and contributing to her financially, this occurrence may constitute a sufficient change in financial circumstances to allow the court to revisit the support award.
The court in Moore clearly held that the only basis to modify a support award is a significant change in the financial circumstances of the parties and that the former wife's sex change, while admittedly significant, did not necessarily affect her financially.

O’Donnabhain claimed that the sex-change operation was a medically necessary treatment for a psychological condition known as "gender dysphoria." It is estimated that SRS can cost up to $25,000 over the life of a patient to cover required medical costs, including initial surgery and the many years of hormonal therapy.
